    The Metropolitan (Met) Police is to be investigated over whether it could have prevented trouble at a funeral that resulted in a man being shot dead.

    Azezur Khan, 21, was gunned down in East Dulwich, south-east London, on 3 November.

    He had been attending the service for road crash victim Joel James Lee Morgan, 17, at a nearby cemetery.

    Joel's mother requested a police presence at the funeral because she feared trouble, it has emerged.

    It is understood that officers attended the earlier church service and the wake, but not the funeral service where the shootings broke out.

    The Met made a voluntary referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) "in relation to information received by them prior to the fatal shooting", the IPCC confirmed.

    In a statement, IPCC commissioner Sarah Green said: "Following the tragic death of Azezur (Ronnie) Khan, who was shot and killed while attending a funeral in Forest Hill Road, south London, on 3 November 2011, the Metropolitan Police referred the matter to the IPCC.

    "We have decided to conduct an independent investigation into the information held and actions taken by the police prior to the incident.

    "Our thoughts are with Ronnie's family and friends at this difficult time."
