An officer involved in the police operation that led to Mark Duggan being shot dead is under investigation for alleged misconduct.
The officer, known only by the code name ZZ46, is the first from the operation to be served with a formal disciplinary notice. Duggan was shot dead on 4 August 2011, shortly after collecting a firearm from gun supplier Kevin Hutchinson-Foster.
The misconduct notice comes after claims that police could have done more to track down Hutchinson-Foster and get his weapons off the street before Duggan collected the gun.
The inquiry is focusing on why ZZ46 did not seek Hutchinson-Foster’s address from the probation service, which held the address of the hostel where he was staying. Duggan’s shooting in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011 led to the biggest riots in modern English history.
