Dramatic video footage shows shootout between gunman and armed police officer in north London

Gunman convicted of shooting at NCA officer
Sedat M surrendered when he ran out of bullets

A gunman fired three shots into a pool hall and then turned his gun on an armed police officer who had staked out the venue in north London in a dramatic shootout caught on CCTV cameras , a court has heard.

Sedat M, 25, was found guilty of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life at the Old Bailey in London.

In the video, M is seen drawing a pistol from a pocket of his hooded jacket then firing into the West Green Pool Bar in May this year.

As he trots away, the police officer approaches and there is an exchange of fire which continues down a car-lined side street.

M eventually ran out of bullets and surrendered.

Giving evidence from behind a screen, the officer, identified as NC32, gave a detailed description of what happened.

“I thought he fired at least two shots. My reaction was of shock and having to make a decision on what I was going to do and his reaction was to turn back the way he had come from. I started to run across the road,” he said.

“While I was running across the road, I drew my pistol from my right hip and shouted to him 'armed police, stand still'.“

The officer was about 15 to 20 metres away when M reacted.

“He turned to face me and he brought his pistol up and fired at me. I returned fire with a single round,” NC32 said.

The gunman carried on running and the officer followed, while trying to get some cover behind cars on the opposite side of the road, the court heard.

“As I moved down the side of the vehicle I am bobbing up and down. I can see the male on the opposite pavement and he is looking at me,” the officer told the court. “I continue to shout 'armed police' and 'police' and got to the end of the first vehicle and he fires again at me.”

NC32 said he continued shouting “armed police” in the hope that M would “stop firing”.

“It was at this point that I fired again at the male on the opposite side of the road. He immediately returned fire again at me,” he said.

But then, the firing stopped. “I came up and looked towards him and could see he was throwing the gun to his right hand side and putting his hands in the air,” NC32 said. “He did so saying something to the effect 'okay, okay'. It was a gesture of surrender.”

“I had my gun on aim and closed the gap towards him and I told him to turn and put his hands up against the wall,” he said.

The court heard that officers from the National Crime Agency’s Armed Operations Unit were carrying out surveillance in the area in relation to a threat to kill a third man.

M fired the shots into the pool hall as a warning to the people who had been making the threats, the jury was told.

The prosecution said M and his accomplice, 22-year-old Oktay A, had gone to the club for an ”armed revenge attack“ following a fight in Tottenham less than 24 hours earlier, involving baseball bats, billiard cues and metal poles.

A, who was arrested as he ran from the scene, was also convicted of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Adjourning sentencing to 9 January, Judge Michael Topolski warned M and A, both from north London, to expect ”significant terms of imprisonment“.

He said: ”This was - on the evidence - a response to a set of circumstances, a dramatic and out of character response.“

Rob Lewin, head of the NCA's Specialist Operations Unit, said: “'Our NCA officer demonstrated professionalism and bravery in the face of extreme danger.

“All NCA firearms officers are trained to the highest standards; the measured and proportionate actions of this officer protected the public in what was a highly volatile situation.”

I have been invited by the UN to be a peace ambasador.

Easy any one caught looting or causing trouble should be shot. :lol

Seriously. Action needs to be taken with idiots walking around waving guns. The evidence is clear he was shooting at someone and a police officer.
You cant just pussyfoot around, set an example. Shoot them


Merry Xmas to you

'Shoot to kill' - 'No trial or prison sentence'....................
You ARE Dodgey, Dave !
Mr Sedat was nevertheless lucky to escape without injury as shots were fired at him. And in the event, IF he had been killed, well I guess he took that risk.
But a POLICY of shoot to kill, would be a step too far IMO.
Happy Christmas to you too.

Are you turning PC

He already proved guilt by having a gun and shooting it.   A serious crime.
So he will get a trail may get of on some human rights crap. And if he doesnt he gets looked after in prison at hugh expense.
ANd i would bet after a few years be realised and do the same crime

My way cures that.

And Merry Christmas to you.

But not sure you can say that any more as it may cause offence  :lol

DD - shock horror - will take immediate steps to reverse new PC tendency !
For myself, I'm certain that Mr Sedat will be convicted and serve a lengthy sentence indeed.
Your proposal is very 'efficient' but has other implications.
And a Happy Festive Time to you too.

But a lengthy prison sentence is very expensive and what stops him reoffending.

My idea of letting him sleep in a nice snug box solves the problem.

I know it opens a can off worms. But at the rate the UK is going it will be as deadly as America where shooting people appears to be a sport.

It has to be stopped now.

The french have listened to me

Police have shot dead a man who stabbed three officers in a police station in central France.

The 20-year-old reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest" in Arabic) as he carried out the attack in Joue-les-Tours, near the city of Tours, on Saturday.

He ran into the station, pulled out a knife and attacked three officers who tried to calm him down, Le Figaro newspaper said.

The attack took place in a police station in Joue-les-Tours

He wounded a female police officer, injuring her cheek and ear, and stabbed two other officers.

A police officer pulled out a gun and fired four shots, killing him instantly, onlookers said.

Other reports said he was shot by two officers.

The Burundi-born man had a criminal record and was known for his "radical Islamic views", Le Figaro said.

A witness said: "I saw the four policemen take the attacker to bring him inside and they told him to calm down. But the guy started to shout 'aaah' and struggled.

"Then I noticed quite a large knife and one of the policemen fell on the floor.  He had blood everywhere and it spurted from its wound.

Anti-terror investigators are reportedly probing the incident

"Then I saw a policewoman with her head full of blood.

"The third officer who was with them fired at him. He shot four times... And I was standing there in a state of shock."

Anti-terror investigators are probing the incident, a source told AFP news agency.

The source said the man "shouted 'Allahu Akbar' from the moment he entered until his last breath".

He was not on any terror watch lists run by France's main domestic intelligence service, the General Directorate for Internal Security.

But the source said his brother was known to security agencies for his radical beliefs and had at one point planned to travel to Syria.

"The investigation is leading towards an attack on police forces on radical Islamist motives," another source told AFP.

A police spokesman said the three officers are in a stable condition.
