Mark Duggan's family left in a 'state of shock'

On August 4, 2011 an unarmed man was shot down in Tottenham. Today we have had what we can only call a perverse judgment.

The jury found that he had no gun in his hand and yet he was gunned down. For us that's an unlawful killing.

The family are in a state of shock and we would ask that you respect their shock.

They can't believe that this has been the outcome. No gun in his hand and yet he was killed - murdered as they have said, no gun in his hand.

– Marcia Willis Stewart, Duggan family solicitor
