IPCC: No evidence man shot by UK police fired gun

LONDON - A watchdog investigating the fatal shooting of a man by police, which sparked three days of rioting and looting across London and other British cities, said on Tuesday there was no evidence a handgun retrieved at the scene had been fired.
Reports initially suggested 29-year-old Mark Duggan had shot at police.
His death sparked a riot in a north London borough on Saturday night when a peaceful demonstration over the shooting turned violent.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said in a statement that ballistic test results showed "at this stage there is no evidence that the handgun found at the scene was fired during the incident."
