Azelle Rodney death: Police 'shot suspect six times'

A suspect was shot six times by an armed officer within seconds of a police car pulling up beside a vehicle he was in, a public inquiry has heard.

Azelle Rodney, 24, from west London, was "killed instantly" when officers carried out a "hard stop" on a VW Golf in Edgware, north London, in 2005.

The Met police officers thought he and two others were on their way to commit an armed raid, the inquiry heard.

The inquiry is being held because an inquest could not see all the evidence.

June Kelly reports.
