Mr Kaba, 24, who was to become a father, was killed unarmed on September 5 after a police pursuit that ended in Streatham Hill, south London.
The Audi he was driving was surrounded by two police vehicles on Kirkstall Gardens, a narrow residential street, and a bullet was fired from a police gun.
The car that Mr. Kaba was driving was recognized by automatic number plate recognition, but it later turned out that the vehicle was not registered in his name.
Watchdog, the independent Bureau of Police Conduct, is leading a murder investigation into the shooting and the Metropolitan Police gunman involved has been suspended.
Mr Kaba’s relatives protested in central London on Saturday and have encouraged activists elsewhere in the UK to do the same.
They have asked the IOPC to see police video footage related to the shooting.
