7 Dead in London Bridge Incident; Police Gun Down 3 Suspected Attackers (UPDATE)

Police are investigating two incidents in London on Saturday, following a van that plowed into pedestrians on the London Bridge, and reports of stabbings from people in the nearby Borough Market area.

In a statement provided by Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, he notes: “At this stage, we believe that six people have died in addition to the three attackers shot dead by police.” That number rose to seven dead on Sunday, June 4, with 48 people being taken to the hospital following what's being called a “brutal terrorist attack.” 

The three attackers are suspects related to what happened on the London Bridge and Borough Market. They have not been identified. It's also being reported that 12 people in east London have been arrested in connection with the incident.

A photo snapped by photographer Gabriele Sciotto appears to show at least one of the attackers after he was stopped by police.

British Prime Minister Theresa May released a statement on the situation, and said it is being treated as potential act of terrorism.

Details began pouring in on social media and witnesses on scene throughout the evening. BBC reporter Holly Jones says the van was probably traveling around 50 miles an hour when it mounted the curb and crashed directly into pedestrians.

“He swerved right around me and then hit about five or six people,” Jones said. “He hit about two people in front of me and then three behind. I’d say there are about four severely injured people. They all have paramedics assisting them at the moment.”

A witness by the name of Mark Roberts spoke with CNN, and he said that the van's crash looked intentional.

“It looked to me that the van was aiming at the people,” said Roberts. “I froze, to be honest. As I was thinking … which direction should I run, the van swerved across the other side of the bridge from me.”

Footage of multiple police cars heading to the site of the incident has been posted by journalists on the ground, with police mounting curbs in their vehicles in order to get there as quickly as possible.

The London Ambulance Service released a statement several hours after the initial event took place, confirming they'd taken at least 20 patients to six different hospitals in the aftermath of the London Bridge incident. Other people were reportedly treated at the scene for less serious injuries.

Metro police have confirmed that a number of people were stabbed in the Borough Market area shortly after the crash. One of them was an on-duty British Transport Police officer who was responding to the incident at London Bridge. He received serious but not life-threatening injuries. Police reported shots were fired.

CNN obtained an eyewitness account that described “a man with a 'massive knife' entered the restaurant at Borough Market, just south of the bridge, and stabbed two people inside. The patrons sheltered in the basement and police then arrived at the scene.”

Metro police issued their “Run, Hide, Tell” directive to citizens as a safety percaution.

A third incident at Vauxhall occurred later in the evening, but Metro police have determined it is not connected to London Bridge and Borough Market.

President Donald Trump has been briefed on the situation, and will continue to receive updates from national security team members when appropriate. The U.S. Department of State issued a statement saying the U.S. condemns these attacks.

Trump seemed to use the incident as inspiration for a new tweet about his proposed travel ban, which is currently locked in legal limbo.

Last month, Ariana Grande's Manchester concert was hit with a terrorist attack that resulted in 22 people killed and more than 59 others injured from an explosion caused by a suicide bomber. Grande has made a strong effort to help families affected by the traumatizing event through her One Love Manchester benefit concert and recently visited recovering concert-goers at the hospital.

She offered some words on tonight's terror attacks:

How 20-Year-Old Martin Garrix Plays His Residency At OMNIA In Las Vegas

Producers these days are getting younger and younger, and touring at the same time, often before they’re 21. So how does a superstar DJ like Martin Garrix, who has an actual residency in Las Vegas, one of the most intoxicated towns in the US, play at clubs when he’s only 20?

Garrix explained the situation to BBC Radio 1’s Cel Spellman, at least with how it goes down at Omnia.

“They start my intro and then I’m allowed to get in the club. They escort me with security and clear the entire DJ booth and the surrounding VIP tables from alcohol. I’m not allowed to be close to alcohol. As my last song is playing they kick me out of the club.”

This means Garrix can’t even hang around in the club after his set to meet fans – but he can still do so off-premises, if he isn’t too tired from jetting around the world.

Garrix turns 21 in May, and says it’s “going to be crazy.”

Josh Jacobson Will Play Hotel Cafe This Saturday

There are few things more appealing as an artist than saying, “I’m following in Adele’s footsteps.”

Though those words are slightly open to interpretation, Josh Jacobson will certainly be performing at the Hotel Cafe this Saturday, the same venue where Adele made her US debut at the tender age of 18.

Josh has been catching fire lately, especially with his new track “Polaroids,” which hit #1 on HypeM. This will surely be an important moment in his career.

Your EDM Premiere: Steve Void – Never Been Better [Free DL]

It’s been a minute since we last heard from Steve Void. Since he dropped his last single “Chemistry,” Steve’s been busy on tour with Matoma, Cheat Codes, and more, so it’s good to see him back in the studio with another release.

“Never Been Better” showcases a more mature side to Steve as he explores new territory alongside Grace Tither’s soulful vocals. Lasting synths drive the track forward as powerful kicks seek to captivate us from start to finish – a technique that Steve has been perfecting over the years.

If you missed Steve on the road last time around you might just be in his luck if you’re in Europe as he’s just announced his Never Been Better spring tour which will see him touch down in Scotland, London, Paris, and more.

“Never been Better is about shaping up and getting ready to show the world who I am and what I am made of. Outside of that feeling, it is about showing that I have never felt more confident and ready to start all of this with everything I have learned over the last few months… both in private and work wise. It has been a roller coaster from when I hopped on the US tour till now and this is just the perfect song to describe my personal and work feelings all in one song.”

Stream it below, grab the free download here and check out the tour poster below for European dates!

Dave Clarke Protests Trump, Refuses To Play In US While He’s President

It was recently announced that “The Baron of Techno,” Dave Clarke, will not be performing in the US for the next four years. This comes after our 45th president was sworn into office this month and a subsequent uproar from the masses occurred. Clarke announced this news on his Facebook last week stating, “I simply cannot consider coming to the US professionally when there is a Misogonyst Narcissist Racist President in office.”

Considering Clarke has been an influential member of the techno community for over three decades now, this might come as a shock to many. This will inevitably stir up some conflict from both Trump supporters and Trump haters that are members of Clarke’s fan base. Clarke states that even if he wanted to, he most likely would not be able to renew his work visa anyway due to Trump’s “‘Hire American’ policy.”

We will be missing something in our clubs for the next four years to say the least. However, I hope more influential artists take a stand like Clarke did in the coming months. You can see the entire Facebook post below:
