'He looked like a cornered fox'

from CNN.com

Police confirmed to CNN that armed officers had shot a man dead at Stockwell station in south London.

One witness, Mark Whitby, told BBC news the man appeared not to be carrying anything but was wearing a thick coat that looked padded.

Whitby said a young Asian man was shot five times after being chased into a train carriage by three men.

"As the man got on the train I looked at his face. He looked from left to right, but he basically looked like a cornered rabbit, like a cornered fox. He looked absolutely petrified," said Whitby.

"He sort of tripped but they were hotly pursuing him and couldn't have been more than two or three feet behind him at this time.

"He half-tripped, was half-pushed to the floor. The policeman nearest to me had the black automatic pistol in his left hand, he held it down to the guy and unloaded five shots into him.

Stunning. Unarmed man gets chased by the cops, they corner him, he gets five bullets at point-blank range. He must have been guilty. Okay, he could have been armed, I'm sure thats exactly why he never shot at them.
