A terror suspect who was shot dead on London Bridge Friday has been identified as 28-year-old Usman Khan, Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said in a statement.
Khan had been residing in the Staffordshire area in England. Police are carrying out a search at an address in the county of Staffordshire.
Khan was known to authorities having been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses and released from prison in December 2018 on license, according to the statement.
When prisoners are released on a license, they are given an electronic tag and they must abide by certain conditions like a home detention curfew, according to a Crown Prosecution Service barrister. If they violate the conditions, they are returned to prison without an appeal.
West Midlands Police released the following photo of Khan:
