Police officer found dead in Camden

17:45 20 February 2013

A police officer has been found shot dead at an address in Camden.

Officers forced their way into the property in King’s Terrace shortly after 4pm yesterday following concerns about the person inside.

They discovered the body of the officer, who was a 43-year-old PC in the Met’s Specialist Protection Command, with a gunshot injury. He was pronounced dead at the scene at around 4.45pm.

His death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage, Scotland Yard said.

Officers from the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) are now investigating. They will prepare a report for the coroner in due course.

The investigation will look at whether an MPS firearm was involved.

A post-mortem examination will be held in due course and an inquest will be opened and adjourned on a date to be fixed.

The IPCC has also been informed.
