‘No suspects, no shots, no casualties’ say police after armed officers rush to Oxford Circus amid stampede of panicked shoppers on Black Friday

UPDATE: ‘No suspects, no shots, no casualties’ say police after armed officers rush to Oxford Circus amid stampede of panicked shoppers on Black Friday

Hundreds have been evacuated from Oxford Circus tube station amid reports of gunshots.

Armed police have arrived on scene after a gunman was reported to have fired shots.

The area is in lockdown and comes on one of the busiest shopping days of the year and pedestrians are being asked to inside buildings as police flood the area.

Greg Bird told MailOnline he was sat outside a coffee shop near Oxford Circus station when he saw ‘about 50 people sprinting around the corner and screaming’.

    Seeing big crowds of infidel shoppers in the Christmas season is like a sugar high for jihad punks. They’ve probably been stocking up on ammo and bomb supplies for months.

    “Oxford Circus Station is closed while we investigate a customer incident,” Transport for London said. A customer incident?

    • It’s odd no casualties reported. Very confused situation.

        The flashpoint was an altercation of two men on a platform at Oxford Circus London Underground train station. Nine people hurt in the stampede were taken to hospital.
        People are scared of a jihad attack. Thank islam.

    Please avoid blaming Islam, or Justin will have to apologize.

      The police did avoid blaming Islam. They called it a “customer invident”.
