The Public Inquiry into the death of Jermaine Baker concluded today

The Chairman held that Mr Baker was lawfully killed by a MPS Counter Terrorism Firearms Officer known as W80.

In his report the Chairman dismissed claims from those representing the family of Jermaine Baker that his death was unlawful killing either by way of murder or gross negligence manslaughter.

A number of criticisms of the operation were made, however, the Chairman concluded that whether considered collectively or individually, these did not cause or contribute to the circumstances which prevailed at the time that Mr Baker was shot, or to his death.

Matthew Butt QC and Ruby Shrimpton were instructed on behalf of the Metropolitan Police Service.
