Mark Duggan gun supplier Kevin Hutchinson-Foster jailed at Old Bailey
The man who supplied a gun to Mark Duggan in the days before the riots has today been jailed for 11 years.
Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, of Neville Road in Hackney, was sentenced at the Old Bailey after being found guilty of transferring a gun to Mr Duggan between July 28 and his death on August 4 2011.
The gun was found in Ferry Lane in Tottenham after 29-year-old Mr Duggan, from Tottenham, was shot dead by police after armed officers stopped a taxi he was travelling in.
His death sparked five days of riots which swept throughout London and spread to Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol and Birmingham.
Today's sentence takes into his account Hutchinson-Foster's previous guilty plea to threatening a 30-year-old man with a gun in a hairdresser's in Kingsland Road in Hackney on July 29, 2011.
Detective Chief Superintendent Dean Haydon, of the Metropolitan Police Service's Trident Gang Crime Command, said: "This is the culmination of a complex and lengthy investigation and the sentence reflects the seriousness of his offending.
"There is an ongoing IPCC investigation into the death of Mark Duggan and the circumstances of his death will be a matter for the coroner at a later date."
