Mark Duggan, 29, was shot by officers on 9th August 2011 in Tottenham, London. Mr Duggan, whose shooting by police sparked London’s riots, did not fire a shot at police officers before they killed him, the Independent Police Complaints Commission said.
Caution: some distressing footage!
In January 2014 a jury concluded that Duggan did not have a gun by the time he stood on the pavement before officers, but also decided that the killing was lawful. How could it have been lawful to shoot a man who was not in possession of a gun and therefore could not have posed a deadly threat?
