"Nevertheless, despite the police actions, the attacker hit the Ambassador's vehicle again", the Ukrainian Embassy said in a statement.
The attacker, a man aged in his 40s, was arrested at the scene. The culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station. However, law enforcement stressed that they were not treating the incident as terrorist-related. When they arrived, the silver Mercedes was said to have been driven at police officers and collided with a number of parked vehicles near the Ukrainian embassy.
Witnesses have said at least 10 shots were fired and Scotland Yard confirmed firearms and a Taser were used.

The vehicle, which a police source said was a Mercedes, appeared to have been backed into the black auto.
Senior police officer Andy Walker said there would be an investigation into the discharge of a police firearm, as in line with procedure.
Officers have remained at the scene during the day, with a silver Mercedes vehicle pictured parked across a street with its boot open and damage to the driver-side front window.
