IVOR suddenly pinned the young man to the seat of a London tube train. Two other men, in jeans and t-shirts, had run onto the carriage seconds before. They each carried guns.
One of the gunmen pressed his weapon against the young man's head. He and the other gunman then fired eight hollow-point bullets into the man as he was immobilised against the seat.
Seven of the bullets smashed into the young man's head, expanding upon impact. One bullet hit his shoulder.
