Another beyond satire moment. Poor bastard got his wish, one way or another. A man has died after armed police shot him at his home in Dagenham.
The Metropolitan Police said officers were called to an address in Weston Green shortly before 8pm on Thursday by a man who said he planned to take his own life. The man, believed to be aged 40, also told police he had loaded firearms.
Police contacted a specialist negotiator and continued efforts to engage with the man before shots were fired by officers just before 9pm.
Despite the efforts of rescue services at the scene, the man was pronounced dead at 9.30pm. End of beyond satire moment.
