“I want to kill someone”, London attacker told his friend
According to the reports, the Westminster attacker sought professional help for anger issues and told friends he dreamed of killing someone.
Those who knew Khalid Masood, also known as Adrian Russell Ajao and Adrian Elms, say he was a “troubled” character whose volatile behaviour and violent temper caused alarm.
His one of the former friend has described how Masood put a knife against his throat in 2000 and said: “I want some blood, I want some f****** blood. I want to kill someone.”
According to Lee Lawrence, 47, told The Daily Telegraph: “After he calmed down a bit he was saying ‘What have I done? What am I doing? I am going for help, I just want blood or I want to kill someone’.
“He said he was having some kind of help, anger management”.
The 52-year-old, hit pedestrians on Westminster Bridge with a car before crashing into railings outside Parliament and fatally stabbing PC Keith Palmer in the grounds of the Palace of Westminster. Three other innocent victims were killed.
He was shoot dead by police on the spot.
But now fears have been prevailing that he was groomed by extremists with a childhood friend claiming the killer turned to Islam and changed his name to Khalid Masood after serving a jail term for assaulting someone with a knife.
