Eye witnesses have reported how the Romford man shot dead by police last night was apparently wandering the streets following a domestic dispute, brandishing guns, shooting at "cats and birds" and telling people to 'get down on the floor'. Another witness described how he was on the phone to the police at times, but invited them to shoot him, he didn't care. The officers involved in the shooting have been relieved of duty "as part of the routine post-incident procedure" and a woman is in hospital. We're not sure who to feel most sorry for.
