Law enforcement in London are investigating the possibility that terrorism was the motive of a man who went on a rampage with a knife killing one woman and injuring up to five others, London Police say.

Officials did not release identities or status of the injured but are calling the incident a potential terrorist attack.

One witness told The UK’s Daily Mail Online: “I heard a scream, and then we went to the park and I saw a girl lying on the floor with blood coming from her back.

“Terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage,” police told NBC News.

The perpetrator was taken into custody after he was brought down with a taser in Russell Square near the British Museum.
