'Police officer' allows shooting

Man shooting 'police officer'

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Amateur video has been released that apparently shows a Metropolitan police officer clad in body armour allowing friends to shoot him with a powerful air pistol.

The YouTube footage also shows him firing at his friends.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the force has begun an investigation but had not identified the man or confirmed whether he is an officer.
