April 06, 1986|From Reuters

LONDON — The number of London police officers authorized to carry guns is to be reduced by about 750 after an inquiry into the accidental shooting of a civilian by a policeman, a spokesman said Friday.

The spokesman said an inquiry into a 1983 shooting in which a bystander was wounded in a London street had recommended tougher selection procedures and more stringent training of officers carrying firearms.
