A man who was shot dead by police in Islington, has been named as 40-year-old Dean Joseph.
Mr Joseph – who was shot twice by a Met marksman in Shepperton Road, Islington on September 5 – was identified by family members at Poplar mortuary on Friday.
He had been holding his former partner, a woman in her 50s, at knifepoint against a wall in her flat when he was shot.
It is believed the woman had a restraining order against Mr Joseph, of Northumberland Park, Haringey, due to a history of domestic violence.
The IPCC is investigating the circumstances surrounding Mr Joseph’s death and investigators have spoken to over 30 witnesses who saw or heard events connected to the fatal shooting in Shepperton Road, Islington.
