Police investigators have found Londoner Mark Duggan did not fire at a police officer before being shot dead in the incident that sparked riots across England.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission said there was no evidence that a gun found at the scene of the fatal shooting had been fired. The bullet found lodged in the radio of an injured police officer was police-issue.
The Guardian summarizes the reports findings:
• The bullet lodged in the police radio is a "jacketed round". This is a police issue bullet and, while it is still subject to DNA analysis, it is consistent with having been fired from a Metropolitan police Heckler and Koch MP5 submachine gun.The news broke as residents, businesses and police forces around England braced for another night of chaos.
