Shots were fired yesterday outside Buckingham Palace as The Man from Bexley was reportedly seen somewhere over the Westminster area. The unidentified Man from Bexley, originally reported to be a hoax by royal officials, has been popping up all over the greater London area since as early as December of last year. Since then, there have been 5 confirmed sightings throughout the city.
The Man from Bexley, so named for the location of his first appearance, caught the public's eye for literally hovering several hundred meters over significant landmarks within the city. City officials refused to comment on these appearances, hinting strongly that this is just another urban myth best ignored.

As spectators gathered to look on, a group of heavily armed men arrived and chased off the crowd, threatening any who remained within eyesight of the group.
