No con­clu­sions in ri­ots shoot­ing: probe

Ottawa Citizen - - WORLD -

The probe into the po­lice shoot­ing of a man which trig­gered the English ri­ots in Au­gust has yet to es­tab­lish fully the cir­cum­stances of his death, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said Satur­day. A re­port in The Guardian news­pa­per claimed the probe had found no foren­sic ev­i­dence that Mark Dug­gan was car­ry­ing a gun when he was shot dead by po­lice Aug. 4 in Tot­ten­ham, north Lon­don. A sub­se­quent demon­stra­tion es­ca­lated into a riot. Across Eng­land, five peo­ple were killed and hundreds of shops were looted, with some set alight. More than 3,000 peo­ple were ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the riot and more than 1,800 charged.
