The men then ran into bars and pubs stabbing more people while Gerard chased them, showing police officers where they had gone before they were shot dead. But they said later that turned out to be an unrelated stabbing.
A taxi driver told the BBC that three men got out of the van with long knives and "went randomly along Borough High Street stabbing people". Phaldip Singh, who describes himself as an entrepreneur and youth activist, tweeted that Sikh temples were open to provide food and shelter for those affected.
At one point, Jones spoke with a French woman who could not locate the two people she had been with.
The BBC showed a photograph of two possible London attackers shot by police, one of whom had canisters strapped to his body.

Washington, Jun 4 US President Donald Trump today called British Prime Minister Theresa May on phone to offer condolences over the "brutal" central London terror attacks in which six people were killed and offered full support in bringing perpetrators of the heinous acts to justice.
In a tweet early Sunday, London police asked the public to "remain calm, but be alert & vigilant". The attacker, 52-year-old Khalid Masood, got out of the vehicle and fatally stabbed an unarmed police officer. "Evil, evil people", he told the newspaper. The critical level means another attack could be imminent.
