Investigation finds man in Coventry was not shot in the back

West Midlands Police is continuing to assist an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) investigation into an armed operation in Coventry.

A 31-year-old man was shot dead by firearms police during the intelligence-led operation in Burnaby Road at around 6.20pm on Friday (4 January).

 

This is being investigated by the IOPC who have said based on the evidence received so far, including body worn footage - and contrary to reports - there is no indication the man was shot in the back.

 

Police have bailed a 26-year-old man arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of cannabis and released another man, also 26, under investigation as enquiries continue.
