Scotland Yard has issued a statement apologizing for the shooting of a suspected suicide bomber yesterday. They have said that he was not involved in
the terrorist incidents of this week and that that his death is a "tragedy".
A man shot dead by police as part of the inquiry into Thursday's attempted bomb attacks was unconnected to the incidents, police have confirmed.
A Scotland Yard statement said the shooting was a "tragedy" which was regretted by the Metropolitan Police.
The man was shot dead after police followed him from a south London flat to Stockwell Tube station on Friday.

This move could undermine confidence in British police. Hopefully a review of armed plain clothes police will occur.
I wouldnt stop for a man with a gun who didnt wear a police/military uniform. Would you?
