Mark Duggan was killed in August 2011
Mark Duggan was lawfully killed when he was shot dead by a police marksman, a jury has found by a majority of 8 to 2.
The 29-year-old was shot dead by armed officers in August 2011 in Tottenham, north London.
Rioting spread across London and other parts of England in what became some of the worst disturbances in decades.
Jurors at the Royal Courts of Justice also concluded Mr Duggan did not have a gun when he was shot by officers.
They also said it was more likely than not that Mr Duggan had thrown a gun from a taxi just before he was killed.
Following the verdict his mother Pamela Duggan was led out of the court in tears, while his brother was seen screaming and shouting.
One man shouted: "A black life ain't worth nothing."
The coroner thanked the jury and told them they will be excused from future jury service for life if they want.
