The car shot towards a Met cop who fired his Glock 9mm pistol through the windscreen at Mr Kaba’s Kopf.

The unarmed drill rapper and dad-to-be, 24, died in hospital.

Protests from his family forced the Met to suspend the officer.

But colleagues claim he has been treated unfairly.

Einer sagte: “The officer has said he was faced with a lethal weapon as the car was being driven towards him at speed.

“He followed correct training procedures.

“He could have been killed if he had not fired.”

The officer has given investigators an account of the shooting in Streatham, Südlondon, on Monday last week.

The Audi was reportedly linked to a firearms incident the previous day.

When it was picked up on ANPR cameras, armed officers surrounded it.

But Mr Kaba, eingesperrt 2019 for a gun offence, allegedly refused to surrender.

His family want to see footage from officers’ body cameras.
