切爾西橋。遭電擊槍擊斃的男子手持打火機

警方監督機構說,一名男子在倫敦西部的一座橋上被電擊後死亡,然後被拉出泰晤士河,他沒有攜帶螺絲刀,而是拿着一個打火機。

據報道,6月4日在切爾西橋路,41歲的Oladeji Adeyemi Omishore拿着一把螺絲刀,警察正試圖將他拘留。

調查人員說,正在對兩名倫敦警察和Omishore先生之間的互動進行調查,並呼籲提供證人。

IOPC現在已經確認,當警官接近Omishore先生時,他正拿着一個塑料和金屬打火機。

IOPC補充說,其中一名警官在該男子入河前發射了泰瑟槍,並且發射了 "不止一次"。

已經進行了屍檢,IOPC說它正在等待結果。對Omishore先生死亡的調查也已開始,並在6月15日休庭。

IOPC的Sal Naseem說。"我們對Omishore先生的家人和所有受他死亡影響的人表示同情。

"我們的調查人員繼續收集和分析關鍵證據,包括在現場記錄的錄像以及官員和公眾的初步描述。

"我們敦促任何其他可能目睹或記錄了事件的任何部分的人,無論是在橋上還是在Omishore先生進入河裡之後,請立即與我們取得聯繫。我們必須了解圍繞他的死亡的所有情況。"


A man who died after being Tasered on a west London bridge and then pulled from the River Thames was not armed with a screwdriver but was holding a firelighter, the police watchdog said.

Officers were trying to detain Oladeji Adeyemi Omishore, 41, after reports he was armed with a screwdriver on Chelsea Bridge Road on 4 June.

Investigators said the interaction between two Met Police officers and Mr Omishore was being looked into and appealed for witnesses.

The IOPC has now confirmed Mr Omishore was holding a plastic and metal firelighter when he was approached by the officers.

A Taser was discharged by one of the officers prior to the man entering the river, the IOPC added, and was discharged "more than once".

A post-mortem examination has taken place and the IOPC said it was awaiting the results. An Inquest into Mr Omishore's death was also opened and adjourned on 15 June.

IOPC's Sal Naseem said: "Our thoughts remain with Mr Omishore's family and all of those affected by his death.

"Our investigators continue to gather and analyse key evidence, including footage recorded at the scene and initial accounts from officers and members of the public.

"We would urge anyone else who may have witnessed or recorded any part of the incident, either on the bridge or after Mr Omishore entered the river, to get in touch with us without delay. It is important we understand all of the circumstances surrounding his death."
