2005_07_tubeshoot.jpgPolice have shot and killed a man at a London tube station. According to reports, a South Asian man was being chased by police officers. One witness told BBC News, "One of [the police officers] was carrying a black handgun - it looked like an automatic - they pushed him to the floor, bundled on top of him and unloaded five shots into him." The shooting occured at the Stockwell station in South London. The media speculates that the man had a connection to yesterday's would-be bombers. As underground travel is still disrupted in London, there are many theories about yesterday's bombings (copycats? the B team?) but investigations are still ongoing. This is wild news as NYC tries to get to work with more police in our subways.
