克里斯-卡巴槍擊案。悲痛欲絕的家庭要退一步

即將成為父親的克里斯-卡巴在9月6日凌晨被槍擊後約兩小時死亡。

在倫敦南部被一名警察槍殺的手無寸鐵的黑人克里斯-卡巴的家人將暫時退出公眾視線。

他的表弟傑弗遜-博塞拉說。"現在,家人要休息一下,退一步海闊天空。"

卡巴家族的法律代表發表的一份聲明說。"昨天,克里斯-卡巴最親近的家人有機會觀看他被警察開槍打死的事件的一些錄像。

"本案的事實要求緊急問責,因此,家屬等待着關於調查的定期有意義的更新,以及對指控決定的進展。

"家屬暫時不會發表任何進一步的評論,同時等待IOPC(警察行為獨立辦公室)的進一步定期更新,以確保調查能夠完成它需要做的工作。

"家屬要求在警戒狀態下對該官員進行審問,並要求儘早作出指控決定,這一要求仍然沒有改變。"

倫敦警察局已將射殺卡巴先生的警官停職,但其家人此前已批評了這一事件發生的時間長度,指責警察局存在種族主義。

調查人員此前表示,在槍擊事件發生當晚,一個自動車牌識別攝像頭顯示,Kaba先生駕駛的一輛汽車與最近發生的一起槍支事件有關,而這輛車並不屬於他。

IOPC說,警官們立即進行了心肺復甦,並要求救護車服務提供支持,但Kaba先生於9月6日凌晨在醫院去世。


Chris Kaba, who was due to become a father, died in the early hours of 6 September about two hours after he was shot

The family of Chris Kaba, an unarmed black man shot dead by a police officer in south London, are to withdraw from the public eye for the time being.

His cousin Jefferson Bosela said: "For now, the family are going to take a break and take a step back."

A statement issued by the Kaba family's legal representatives said: "Yesterday, Chris Kaba's closest family were given the opportunity to view some footage of the incident in which he was fatally shot by a police officer.

"The facts of this case demand urgent accountability and the family therefore await regular meaningful updates on the investigation and the progress towards a charging decision.

"The family will not make any further comment for the time being, whilst awaiting further regular updates from the IOPC (Independent Office for Police Conduct) to ensure that the investigation does the job that it needs to do.

"The family's demands for the officer to be questioned under caution and for an early charging decision remain unchanged."

The Met Police has suspended the officer who shot Mr Kaba, but the family has previously criticised the length of time it took for this to happen, accusing the force of racism.

Investigators have previously said that on the night of the shooting, an Automatic Number Plate Recognition camera indicated a vehicle being driven by Mr Kaba, which was not registered to him, had been linked to a recent firearms incident.

The IOPC said CPR was immediately given by officers and support requested from the ambulance service, but Mr Kaba died in hospital in the early hours of 6 September.
