London police open fire after vehicle rams Ukrainian ambassador’s auto

The Ukrainian embassy said its ambassador's vehicle was "deliberately rammed" as it sat outside the building.

London Metropolitian Police said in a statement that a 40-year-old man had been arrested.

London's Metropolitan Police said firearms and stun guns were used to stop and detain a suspect who drove a vehicle at the police auto when police arrived on the scene.

Earlier, eyewitnesses, as quoted by the Daily Star, stated that the gunfire allegedly came from a vehicle near the embassy building, with police returning fire. Thus, now he is in custody at a central London police station. As police officers arrived at the scene, the vehicle then drove towards them, prompting them to open fire, shooting at the driver through the auto window.

Firearms officers swooped and the vehicle was then driven at police.

Police said the incident is not being treated as related to terrorism. He said the embassy had not been threatened in recent weeks.
