'Police shooting has been found to violate the right to life'

Police had no lawful justification for shooting dead a 24-year-old man in north London eight years ago, an inquiry has found.

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

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

Daniel Machover, representing Mrs Alexander said: "Uniquely a police shooting has been found to violate the right to life of someone because of the planning of the police operation and the conduct of the officer who fired the shots".
