Chris Kaba: Met Police suspend officer involved in shooting

It’s quite a week for a new Metropolitan Police Commissioner to start work.

As Sir Mark Rowley took charge at Scotland Yard today, he promised “more trust and higher standards” from the Met, which is currently in special measures.

This evening, as the family of Chris Kaba, a 24-year-old shot dead last week gathered for a vigil, the Met Police confirmed the firearms officer involved in his shooting has been suspended from duty.
