Officers opened fire in west London on Saturday morning during an incident involving a car that was colliding with vehicles, the Metropolitan Police has said.
The Ukrainian embassy said its ambassador’s vehicle was “deliberately rammed” as it sat parked outside the building in Holland Park.
When officers arrived on the scene, a car was “driven at them”, the Met said.
Officers used firearms and a Taser before arresting a man in his 40s.
Police said the uninjured man was “taken to a central London hospital as a precaution”.
They added that the situation was neither ongoing nor being treated as terror-related.
