A man who died during a police drugs raid in Bradford was killed by a gunshot wound to the head, a post mortem examination has revealed.

Colin Berry, 49, from Buckingham Close in the Clayton area of Bradford, died during the raid on his home that was carried out by unarmed officers from West Yorkshire police on April 4.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is investigating the events that led up to Mr Berry’s death.

An IPCC investigator attended the scene last week and staff are liaising with members of Mr Berry’s family.

A date for the opening of an inquest that is likely to be held in Bradford has yet to be set.
