Marlon Duggan told inquest brother Mark 'seemed normal' before shooting
Mark Duggan's brother told a jury that he "seemed normal" just moments before he died.
Marlon Duggan yesterday gave evidence at a inquest into the death of his brother on August 4, 2011, in Ferry Lane, Tottenham.
Mr Duggan, 29, was shot by armed police officers, sparking riots across Tottenham, London and the UK.
The 29-year-old was on the phone to his brother Marlon as little as six seconds before armed police officers stopped the minicab.
When asked about how he sounded just prior to being stopped by the police he said: "Mark seemed normal just like it was any other day."
At the time of the phone converation it is believed that Mr Duggan knew he was being followed by officers from Met Police's Trident Gang Crime Command.
Marlon was not asked if his brother had told him this so it is unclear if he was aware.
Marlon said Mark had called him to tell him to meet him in the Broadwater Farm Estate in Tottenham.
Despite being the last person to speak to Mr Duggan while he was alive he was asked no further questions and took the witness stand for about two minutes.
While the court room seemed tense as Marlon Duggan was called to give evidence he seemed undisturbed.
The inquest continues.
