Worrisome news here. From the Washington Post:

Police did not provide a motive for the killing. But British media organizations including the Guardian and Sky News quoted witnesses as saying that the assailant shouted "Britain First!" during and after the attack — a slogan linked to anti-immigrant groups.

“America First,” of course, is the slogan of Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
