A stray bullet fired by police wounded an American bystander during the London Bridge terror attack on Saturday, NBC News is reporting.
Authorities have revealed no details about the American civilian, but said he was expected to survive, according to NBC News.
The American was wounded as police shot and killed the London Bridge attackers, according to Fabio Lamas, a worker at a Borough Market pub who reported the incident.
"I got people to start evacuating inside… and got people to come into the bar and to go into toilets, hide under tables and hide in our cellar where we keep all our stock. Then I heard shooting and I saw an American guy get shot in the head," Lamas said, NBC reports.
"He was bleeding through his eye. I went to get the first-aid kit and I started speaking to his friends and to try and calm them down," he added.
The American was standing close to a window inside the pub, and at least one of the attackers was shot dead outside the location. Lamas told NBC News the victim was with two friends who said they were American doctors who lived in London.
Seven people died and nearly 50 were injured in the attack. London police said officers killed the attackers within eight minutes of arriving at the scene of the Saturday night attack, in which three men with knives attacked pedestrians at bars and restaurants, according to Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, the London police's head of counterterrorism.
