ebn | 22.07.2005 14:35 | London

Worst fears come true. Killer cops shot dead an asin man this morning execution style after following him from his home and allowing him to enter a tube train full of passengers before tackling him to the ground then firing five bullets into his head at point blank range.

Early speculation was that the man had a bomb under his jacket but it has now been confirmed that he was completely unarmed. While some of the media is saying the man look suspcious because of his jacket, anyone who was out this morning will know that it is actually rather chilly.

This man should have been stopped and arrested in the street is he was suspected of being a bomber, not allowed to enter the tube and killed while restrained by cops.
Tailing The Tube Suicide Bomb Suspect

Specialist officers had been tailing the man shot at Stockwell Tube station from his home, says Sky News Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt.Police believed the Asian man was responsible for an attempted attack on the nearby Oval Tube on Thursday and had set up surveillance on him.Brunt said officers had followed the man from his home and that the initial plan was to arrest him.

But from his home to Stockwell Tube, events overtook police and marksmen were forced to shoot.

Despite temperatures of around 22C (72F), officers and witnesses said the man was wearing a heavy coat under which it was feared may have been a bomb.

Brunt said: "Intelligence officers had suggested he was the bomber from Thursday.

"Officers were confronted with the very real possibility that this man did have a bomb."

Initial examinations though, said Brunt, did not discover any explosives on the suspect.
