Footage obtained by the Daily Mirror shows the moment two terror suspects charged at police officers in Woolwich after a soldier was murdered.
The amateur video, which appears to have been taken from a nearby block of flats, shows the two men walking along a footpath before one splinters off and runs full speed towards a marked police car, dropping a bladed weapon as a voice shouts orders to him to "drop it".
Just inches before the man reaches the car officers fire two shots and he falls to the ground.
The second man sidles along a fence on the footpath, pointing what appears to be a gun at the officers, who surround the man lying prone on the floor.
Four more shots ring out, felling the second man, and another two shots are also fired as the men lie on the floor.
