DCI John Sandlin, who is leading the investigation, said: "This was a highly visible attack in broad daylight on a residential street. I can understand why this may cause people concern. However, we are confident that we are not looking for anyone else at this stage. While it is too early to speculate on what the motive behind this attack was, I am confident, based on the information currently available to me, that it is not terrorist-related.
The Met added: "A 25-year-old man was detained by firearms officers near the scene of the incident. He was arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody.One firearms officer was injured during the course of the arrest, believed to be suffering from a broken wrist A Taser was discharged by officers."In yet another example of the twisted priorities of our society (I'll leave it to Mark Wadsworth to highlight the twisted priorities of the MSM..!), we have this:
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) have also been informed after the man was injured during the arrest.You couldn't make it up.
But while we all breathe a sigh of relief that this is not terrorism, are we not going to wonder if 'terrorism' isn't the accurate word to describe a public sector that prioritises the rights of the floridly psychotic to wander around free over the rights of 82 year old widows to garden in safety?
