The UK police have explained why Nigerian-born player, Odichukumma Kelvin Igweani, was shot dead on Saturday, June 26.
Igweani is said to have killed a neighbour who rushed to save a toddler he took hostage.
The neighbour heard a toddler screaming for his life from Igweani’s house and he went to intervene but was killed.
Other neighbours called police to report a “horrible commotion” inside.
When police stormed the flat in Milton Keynes, Bucks, on June 26, they found hero, Richard Woodcock, 38, lying on the floor lifeless.
Officers also found Igweani holding the seriously injured two-year-old boy captive in the bedroom. After initial attempts to stun the 24-year-old footballer with a taser as he continued to pose a threat to his hostage, police shot him four times.
Igweani was pronounced dead at the scene and Woodcock died of head injuries while the toddler remains in a life-threatening condition in the hospital.
