US Citizen ‘Shot In The Head’ By UK Police During London Terror Attack
U.K. police who were responding to the London Bridge terror attacks Saturday accidentally shot an American citizen in the head.
Police fired approximately 50 rounds at the attackers who were using knives to attack bystanders after ramming others with a van. Fabio Lamas, a local bartender, recalled seeing the three Islamic State terrorists carrying knives.
“I got people to start evacuating inside from our little garden that we have … and got people to come into the bar and to go into toilets, hide under tables and hide in our cellar where we keep all our stock,” Lamas told NBC. “Then I heard shooting, and I saw an American guy get shot in the head.”
The unidentified American was standing near a window inside Wheatsheaf pub. One terrorist was shot dead just outside the establishment.

Lamas claimed the victim was a doctor from either New Jersey or New York. The man was with two friends who were living in London. The U.S. embassy in Britain has not acknowledged an American was injured in the event.
London Metropolitan police responded to the attack within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency phone call regarding the incident, according to Metropolitan Police Service Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley. The officers responding to the event “fired an unprecedented number of rounds to be completely confident they had neutralized those threats.”
The attackers killed seven people and injured another 48.
