|Azelle Rodney: family and friends want justice.
Susan Alexander, Azelle's mother, wants the armed policeman suspended until an investigation has concluded.
Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Ian Blair refuses to act against the SO19 officer.
The IPCC has drafted a report into the fatal shooting on 30th April which IPCC deputy chair John Wadham is due to consider before deciding whether to refer the case to the Crown Prosecution Service.
24-year-old Mr Rodney is believed not to have been holding any weapon as he was ordered out of a silver Volkswagen Golf car by armed cops in Hale Lane, Edgware, in north London.
An officer shot Mr Rodney seven times, including five times to his head, which was said to be almost totally destroyed. The cop has since been on paid leave.
Mr Rodney had just celebrated his 24th birthday and was looking forward to the birth of his baby. His case is now being backed by the campaign group Inquest.

If Mr Rodney did not appear to present a genuine threat to officers the Crown Prosecution Service should consider manslaughter charges, campaigners believe.
The dead mans family are angry at false media reports in the immediate aftermath of the shooting claiming Mr Rodney had been holding a firearm.
Comparisons have been drawn with the fatal shooting of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes in Stockwell underground station, south London, on 22nd July.
Ms Alexander said: “We have asked for the officer to be suspended, however in a previous meeting with the IPCC, it was said that the likelihood of this happen is not very great.
“It’s taken seven months. I haven’t been able to greave or anything. It's unbelievable! We don’t know who this officer is. It is an insult and simply is not good enough.”
Helen Shaw, co-Director of Inquest, said: “There have been 17 fatal police shootings since 2000. Inquest urges that the death of Azelle Rodney should be thoroughly and impartially investigated to ensure that his family obtains the justice they deserve.”
Armed officers 'hard-stopped' the car containing Mr Rodney in what was described as a pre-planned operation. No shots were fired at police during the incident.
The two other occupants, Wesley Lovell, 26 and Frank Graham, 23, were arrested and are each facing four charges of carrying guns and ammunition.
An inquest into Azelle Rodney’s death was opened on 5 May 2005 and adjourned, pending the outcome of the criminal investigation by the IPCC.
