That is pretty much the brunt of it. This is there excuse to loot.
At this stage,... alledgely armed and alledgedly a drug dealer - he's never been inside before.

It now looks likely given reports that he did not fire a gun (that pre-supposes he had one), and was killed by a single gunshot. It also appears likely given latest reports that the bullet lodged in the police radio was surprise surprise... a police bullet.

Ironically, the police probably thought they were making the streets safer by getting this guy out of the picture... assuming he was a gun-totting drug dealer. But let's wait and see. It really wouldn't be the first time that police have mucked up in this manner... Ian Tomlinson, Menenzes etc etc...
It's arrived, e93 M3 Convertible: M-DCT, JzB / extended BB, and most of the options.
