Holland Park: Police open fire on auto racing towards Ukrainian embassy

Police opened fire outside Ukraine's embassy in London on Saturday after a vehicle rammed into the ambassador's parked auto and then drove at officers called to the scene.

The Ukraine Embassy said its ambassador's official auto, which was parked, was rammed twice before police arrived at 9:50 a.m.

No one was hurt in the incident, which happened early on Saturday outside the embassy building in the affluent Holland Park area of west London, and it was not being treated as terrorism, police said in a statement.

British police fired shots outside the Ukrainian embassy after the ambassador's vehicle was "deliberately rammed" today.

Police were immediately called and they opened fire after the man behind the wheel rammed the auto a second time. Nevertheless, despite the police actions, the attacker hit the Ambassador's auto again.

Officers opened fire in west London on Saturday morning while responding to reports of a auto collision, the Metropolitan Police has said. The culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station. No one from the embassy was injured in the attack. "The police are investigating the suspect's identity and motive for the attack", it added.

Armed and unarmed officers were dispatched to the scene and had to use firearms and Tasers to stop the man after his "vehicle was driven at police officers".

Police firearms and Taser were discharged, the vehicle was stopped and a man, aged in his 40s, was arrested.

Some reports suggested there were shots from the auto that hit the ambassador's vehicle, but the embassy said only the British police opened fire.

"He has been taken to a central London hospital as a precaution".

The vehicle has been a focus of attention for forensics officers.
