Three Metropolitan Police officers and one British Transport Police officer were injured during the attack, the police said in a statement Monday, and one of the officers is still in serious condition. Others who had been arrested were released without being charged.
The London mayor had invited people to attend the vigil in order for everyone to "come together in solidarity".
On Tuesday, counter-terror officers were searching a property in Ilford, east London, after entering the address about 1.30am BST.
All three men were shot dead by police within eight minutes of receiving a 999 call.
Thirty-six people remain in London hospitals, with 18 in critical care.
Butt had previously been investigated by authorities. Rachid Redouane was not known to law enforcement.
Butt featured in a Channel 4 documentary previous year about Islamist extremists with links to the jailed preacher Anjem Choudary. He is also seen with an "Islamic State-styled" flag outside Regents Park, Channel 4 reported.
Salahudeen said the man had two children - a boy and a baby girl. "However, there was no intelligence to suggest that this attack was being planned and the investigation had been prioritized accordingly", British police said in a statement. There are 500 current investigations involving 3,000 potential suspects.
Christine Archibald, a 30-year-old Canadian who had moved to Europe to be with her fiance, was the first of those who died to be named.
"We saw him many, many times around here", said Salahudeen, a 40-year-old driving instructor, who lives near the ground-floor flat in a modern-looking apartment block in the east London suburb.
"My boyfriend is missing for 24h after London Bridge terror attack", she posted, adding on Monday: "I still have no news". Trump continued his criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Monday, "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement". "We in this country have faced a terrorist threat throughout my life - it changed and morphed and we will change and adapt to what appears to be a new reality for us", she said.
Mr Khan said that "over half" of the 400 Britons who are believed to have returned to the United Kingdom after fighting in Syria are thought to be in London.
A book of condolences will open on Tuesday at Southwark Council's headquarters in Tooley Street. "One whole day", she said.
"Khuram Shazad Butt was known to the police and MI5".
He said: "The mayor is focused on dealing with Saturday's horrific and cowardly attack and working with the police, the emergency services and the Government to keep London safe".
"The Conservative plans mean another £400m of cuts to the Met", he said.
"I don't expect things to happen like that in this area but who knows what your neighbours are like?" I'm told they are temporary but as they have not impeded the traffic flows on the bridges, Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) have not been needed to implement them.
