Azelle Rodney death: 'No justification' for police shooting

5 July 2013 Last updated at 13:27 BST

Police had no lawful justification for shooting dead a man in north London eight years ago, a report says.

Azelle Rodney, 24, was shot six times in Edgware after the car he was in was stopped by Met Police officers in 2005.

An officer known as E7, who said he opened fire because he believed Mr Rodney was reaching for a gun, could now face criminal charges.

Mr Rodney's mother, Susan Alexander, has demanded an apology from the Met for his "execution".

Tom Symonds reports.
