Chris Kaba family views police body-cam footage
The family of Chris Kaba has viewed the body-worn police camera footage of the moments leading up to his death.
Kaba, 24, was an unarmed black man killed by the Met Police in south London. He was shot dead by an armed officer following a car pursuit that ended in Streatham on 5 September.
His mother told the BBC it had been “very hard” to watch the footage. The family have also met with the Met Police’s Commissioner after viewing the footage.
Ms Nkama said her heart was “already broken” but now she wants “justice.” “I want the truth,” she said. “The truth. That’s what I want for Chris,” she said of her son, who had been an expectant father.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has begun a homicide investigation into the shooting.
Chris Kaba’s cousin Jefferson Bosela repeated the comments that the family wants “justice” but said they would be taking a “step back” after some initial campaigning.
