Any more on the story of police shooting dead a driver in a car. Witness on radio said they were talking to police when the police turned and started firing at the car. Why have an aerial photo of a handgun left on top of the car?

A man has has died after armed police fired “ten shots” at his car after stopping it at a motorway junction yesterday morning.

After the gunfire left the car riddled with bullets and shattered windows, officers were seen dashing to the vehicle to haul the man out before attempting to resuscitate him.

The man was pronounced dead at the roadside of the A369 near Portishead, North Somerset. Photographs from the scene showed a black handgun on top of the car. The shooting has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Police confirmed the incident was “not terrorist related”, but refused to be drawn on the exact details of the operation.

The incident happened after a series of 999 calls from “concerned members of the public” travelling on the M5 who had reported seeing a motorist brandishing a handgun on Wednesday morning.

The car, a red Suzuki Swift, was then seen to leave the motorway sometime after 9am at Junction 19 heading towards the A369, known as the Portbury Hundred road. At some point it is believed the vehicle was either “hard stopped” by police or boxed in by traffic before shots were fired.

Describing the moment police gunmen drew their weapons, eyewitness David Ellison said: "As I came out of Portishead to join the motorway I got stopped and ahead of me were police in the road.

"I saw them back off from a car and then they surrounded it and then they shot with handguns five, six, maybe ten times.

"They dragged a man from the car to resuscitate him. There was a crash team. It was roughly 9.30 in the morning.

"It was maybe only ten feet from the motorway. It was boxed in with cars. They had been pinned. They shot through the passenger window. There were two police with handguns."

He said there were only about six officers at the site of the shooting - one of whom was directing traffic away from the area. A Great Western Air Ambulance was also scrambled to the scene.

Mark De Lancey posted on the Facebook page Hello Portishead: “I got up on the roundabout as the police were smashing the guys window and dragging him out. God knows what was happening.”

Frazer Phillips from Bristol wrote on the webpage: "I was right next to it when it happened and heard about 4-5 shots."

The scene was cordoned off and officers in white forensic suits had erected a blue and white tent opposite a number of vehicles on the side of the road.

Photographs showed the dead man lying under a bloodied blanket in front of a car with bullet holes in it. Only the dead man’s trainer and white sock on one foot were visible. The driver’s rear-side window was missing having been apparently shot out. The back of the vehicle had at least three bullet holes in the metal.

The incident caused widespread disruption to road networks across the South West of England.


A spokeswoman for Avon and Somerset Police said: "We can confirm a man died earlier this morning in an incident involving police firearms on The Portbury Hundred (A369) in Portishead.

“We received calls from concerned members of the public travelling on the M5 who reported they had seen a man in a car with a handgun.

"The vehicle left the motorway at Junction 19 and officers stopped the car on the A369 known as the Portbury Hundred.

"Shots were subsequently fired in an incident involving police firearms and a man has died.

“We have referred the incident to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. This has been a fast moving incident and is now under investigation by the IPCC."

An IPCC spokeswoman said: "IPCC investigators are at the scene gathering evidence and are attending the post-incident procedures.

"Our investigation is in its very early stages."

Man dead after police 'surround car and shoot into it' near Bristol
Witness says police shot numerous times then dragged man out of car to try to resuscitate him on road close to M5
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/sep/27/police-car-shoot-near- bristol-witness

A man has died after police opened fire multiple times as they tried to stop a suspect they believed was driving down the motorway with a gun after threatening another motorist.

An independent investigation was under way into the shooting close to the M5 near Bristol. It began after a caller told police a man with a firearm had been seen on the motorway and they scrambled to intercept him.

At least one gun, believed not to belong to the police, has been recovered from the scene of the shooting; that is the item that appears to be a handgun pictured on top of the roof of the red car.

One source told the Guardian that another police force had information about the driver that was not known to Avon and Somerset as they rushed to deal with the incident. That information pointed to there being earlier concerns about the welfare of the driver. It is believed the man who was shot dead is white.

It is understood that at least one armed response vehicle was dispatched. Police believed they were under threat, and opened fire.

The shooting took place on the A369 330ft (100m) from junction 19 of the M5 at about 9.30am on Wednesday. It has been referred to the police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Police closed in on the red Suzuki car after it came off the M5. One witness claimed to have heard five shots, another said there were 10.

The road where the shooting took place, the Portbury Hundred, is a few minutes’ drive from the Avon and Somerset police headquarters.


Frazer Phillips wrote on the Hello Portishead Facebook page: “I was right next to it when it happened and heard about 4-5 shots.”

On the same page, Mark De Lancey wrote: “I got up on the roundabout as the police were smashing the guy’s windows and dragging him out. God knows what was happening!”

In a statement the IPCC said: “We have been advised that officers were responding to reports of a man travelling on the M5 with a handgun and that he had threatened another motorist. What appears to be a non-police-issue firearm was found at the scene and will be subject to examination.”

A witness told BBC Radio Bristol that police fired a number of shots into the car. “As I came out of Portishead … police were ahead of me. They surrounded it. They shot maybe five, six or 10 times. Then they dragged a man from the car to resuscitate him,” David Ellison said.

“It came off the roundabout towards Portishead and then was boxed in by cars. They shot through the passenger window. There were one or two marked cars and two more unmarked vehicles.”

In a statement, Avon and Somerset police appeared to confirm that officers had fired multiple shots: “Earlier this morning we received calls from concerned members of the public travelling on the M5 who reported they had seen a man in a car with a handgun.

“The vehicle left the motorway at junction 19 and officers stopped the car on the A369, known as the Portbury Hundred. Shots were subsequently fired in an incident involving police firearms and a man has died. We referred the incident to the IPCC; they’re now on the scene carrying out an independent investigation, which we are supporting.”

A tri-force specialist operations unit car was parked at the police cordon. The unit is a collaboration between the Avon and Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire forces, and delivers an armed response in south-western England.

Pictures from the scene showed a body lying on the road covered in a blanket, which remained there for several hours. A right leg and white trainer could be seen. Bullet holes were visible on the car, a red Suzuki Swift, and what appeared to be a black handgun rested on the roof.

A police officer can legally use force if there is an honest belief that a suspect presents a threat to life: if they are acting in self-defence of their own life, or to protect other people, based on what they believe at the time.

Among armed officers, one of the hardest tasks is dealing with a suspect believed to have a gun who is in a moving vehicle, because it presents many challenges.

Under the law, all police shootings have to be independently investigated by the IPCC. Its investigators were waiting for officers involved in the incident to give their initial accounts and securing any video footage that may exist of the shooting and the prelude to it.

IPCC commissioner Cindy Butts said: “My thoughts are with the man’s family and all those affected at this difficult time. The investigation is in its very early stages and we will be working hard to establish exactly what happened and would ask for patience while our investigation continues. At this stage we are currently investigating the circumstances of the incident and no individual police officer is under investigation.

Police said the road was likely to remain closed for some time.

The police and crime commissioner for Avon and Somerset, Sue Mountstevens, cancelled a Facebook Live event, saying: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be postponing today’s Facebook Live. We apologise for the cancellation at such short notice.”
