Family and friends of a man who died after being shot by a police officer are urging more witnesses to come forward.
Lewis Skelton, 31, died as a result of two gunshot wounds after being shot by a police officer in Francis Street in the city centre at 9.30am on November 29, last year.
Police were initially called to Holderness Road after reports of a man carrying an axe in the area. He was tasered before being shot and later died of his injuries in Hull Royal Infirmary.
Now, close friend Eddy Barby and Lewis’ family members are setting up a Facebook page to allow further witness to come forward.
“We need witnesses to come forward and to find out what upset Lewis that day,” said Mr Barby, 29. “The IPCC have got witnesses to come forward but there are still more people we need to hear from.
