A Met Police officer has been charged with the murder of Chris Kaba in September last year.

The firearms officer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will attend Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (September 21).

Chris Kaba, a 24-year-old father-to-be, was shot through the windscreen of a car in Streatham Hill, south London, on September 5 2022.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Helen Millichap said: “We have fully supported the IOPC investigation as it has worked to establish the facts.

“Today’s announcement is a significant and serious development. We must now allow the court process to run its course so it would not be appropriate for me to say more at this stage.

“Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this case.”

The Met Police says the officer remains suspended from duty, and that “misconduct matters will be considered at the conclusion of the criminal proceedings”.
