BREAKING: Terror Attack in London, Catastrophic Injuries

There are multiple reports of a shooting outside of the UK Parliament in London. 

UPDATE (Justin): The assailant apparently exited the vehicle that he used to run over bystanders on the Westminster Bridge and entered the British Parliament building where he stabbed a police officer before he himself was shot.

UPDATE II (Justin): Police are treating the attack as terrorism.

UPDATE III: According to Sky News, a junior doctor at a local hospital has confirmed one woman has died and many other have been severely and catastrophically injured after being run over. President Trump has been informed of the situation and is following closely. 

People reportedly jumped off the Westminster Bridge in an effort to get to safety. Many people were crushed when a terrorist rammed the vehicle and pinned individuals against the railing. A number of people are trapped in the pods close to the bridge on the British Eye.

The BBC has a live stream of the events on the ground:

UPDATE IV: Two people are now confirmed dead. Scotland Yard is expected to make a statement shortly. Today is the one year anniversary of the terror attack in Brussels, where Islamic terrorists killed 32 people. At least one woman was pulled from the river alive. 

UPDATE V: The suspect was shot three times and appears to have survived.
