A second post-mortem examination of Jermaine Baker is due to take place today at the request of the Met Police firearms officer arrested over the killing. The 28-year-old was fatally shot in Wood Green, north London, on 11 December during an alleged plot to spring Turkish criminals Erun Izzet and Erwin Amoyaw-Gyamfi from Wood Green Crown Court.
The Metropolitan Police officer who opened fire was arrested and later suspended while an inquest into Baker's death was opened on Monday (21 December). A police inquiry into the incident is also being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC)
The IPCC said a 'non-police gun' was found at the scene and that it will be forensically tested. "The launch of a criminal investigation does not mean that criminal charges will necessarily follow," the police watchdog said.
Nathan Mason, 30, of Vicarage Road, Tottenham and Gokay Sogucakli, 19, of The Roundway in Tottenham were charged with conspiracy to aid the escape of Izzet and Amoyaw-Gyamfi as well as possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an offence. The pair are also accused of driving a motor vehicle taken without consent.
Ozcan Eren, 31, of Douglas Road, Wood Green, and Eren Hayser, 25, of Kettering Road in Enfield were also charged with conspiracy to aid the men's escape. All four men will appear at Wood Green Crown Court on 4 January.
