    Police forensic officers work in Russell Square in London early on August 4, 2016, after a woman in her 60s was killed during a knife attack. The woman was killed and five people injured in a knife attack in central London late on August 3 which police said they are investigating for possible terrorist links.

    Police in London have a man in custody after he went on a rampage Wednesday night with a knife — killing a woman and injuring as many as six others, NBC News reported. 

    The suspect was described as a 19-year-old man who was under police guard in a hospital. They are calling the incident a possible terrorist attack. 

    "Terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage," police said, adding that extra officers remain in the area as a precaution. 

    The Metropolitan Police said the man was arrested about 10:40 p.m. (5:40 p.m. ET) after he was brought down with a Taser in Russell Square, near the British Museum.
