Police officer faces shooting probe

A police officer faces a criminal inquiry for shooting dead an unarmed man in a village car park, investigators have said.

Anthony Paul Grainger, 36, died of a single gunshot wound to the chest after the car he was in was stopped in Culcheth, Cheshire, last month.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission said it had been advised by the prosecutors to "criminally interview" the Greater Manchester Police firearms officer responsible.
