The family of a man shot dead by police after a chase in south London have called for a murder investigation to be launched into his killing.

Chris Kaba, who was in his 20s, died in hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning after being shot at about 10pm on Monday night in Streatham Hill.

In a statement, his family said they worry that if he “had not been black, he would have been arrested on Monday evening and not had his life cut short”.

“We are devastated; we need answers and we need accountability,” said the statement, released through the charity Inquest.

“The family of Chris Kaba seek a homicide investigation into his death from the outset.

“We have today told the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) of that demand and that we do not want any delay as has happened in other fatal shootings – otherwise we and the wider public can have no confidence that the police will be held to account.”
