A man, only identified as Witness B, told the jury at the inquest into Mark Duggan’s death that Mark was “definitely” holding a gun when he was shot by police.
The witness, who lives on the ninth floor of a flat near to the scene, looked out of his window after he heard someone shouting “put it down” or “get down”.
Witness B said he then went to get his phone so he could film the incident and gain footage, which he later supplied to the BBC.
He told the court that Mark was holding a phone before getting shot twice by officers and he tried to flee in the direction of Tottenham Hale. He also claimed that the phone was still in Mark’s hand when he collapsed.
The inquest continues.
