'The man, in his 50s, was shot by armed police during an operation in Lee Bank, an inner city area.  
Armed officers opened fire during an “intelligence led” raid at a flat in Wheeleys Lane shortly before 5am.
The man was confirmed dead at the scene a short time later. The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) in now investigating.

The body is used to investigate whether police have breached protocol during serious incidents in which someone has died.
For instance, last year it directed gross misconduct charges for five officers involved in the death of Sean Rigg, who suffered a cardiac
arrest in police custody. A statement from West Midlands Police said: "Enquiries are under way after a man was shot dead by armed
police during an operation at an address in Birmingham.

"A warrant was executed as part of an intelligence-led operation in Wheeleys Lane in Lee Bank just before 5am today (Friday 15 March).
"A man, in his 50s, was shot and died a short time later at the scene. "The area is currently cordoned off.
"Officers’ body worn video has been downloaded...'

If we assume the man was innocent and the warrant was for something not involving violence or terrorism, it shows again how far
we've come. The victim was shot because the law enforcement were carrying firearms, people with guns can do that.
