LONDON (Reuters) - The suspect in the fatal shooting of a police officer in London is believed to have shot himself and remains in a critical condition, the commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police Cressida Dick said on Friday.

“Early indications are that the suspect shot himself. This has not yet, of course, been established as a fact,” she said in a televised statement.

“The man, I can tell you, remains in a critical condition in hospital.”
