A man shot dead by police after a chase in south London has been named locally as 23-year-old rapper Chris Kaba.
Mr Kaba was shot after a pursuit of a "suspect vehicle" that ended in Kirkstall Gardens, Streatham Hill, at about 21:50 BST on Monday.
Pastor Rachel Swaby said Mr Kaba was a rapper known as Madix and part of the MOBO-nominated drill group 67.
Kim Alleyne, 49, whose daughter Karima Waite was engaged to Mr Kaba, said he had been due to become a father.
She said: "He was so loved. He was so funny. He was super-kind. Crazy. He was always happy. He'd do anything for you."

She added: "He was a fiancé, he was due to get married in five months' time. He's got a baby on the way that he's never going to see.
"It's horrible and so shocking and so sad."
She questioned why Mr Kaba was shot, adding that her daughter was "in a tremendous amount of pain". Ms Alleyne sad had her daughter's fiancé been white he would have been given "a chance to get out the car".
Ms Swaby, a pastor at New Park Road Baptist Church, told the BBC she felt "physically sick" learning about the death of Mr Kaba.
She said: "He was a young person in the community, obviously a talented rapper.
"He had a young family on the way and it just feels like his life has been cut short for no reason... I think something needs to be done to hold police to account."

Mr Kaba's cousin Jefferson Bosela, 27, described the rapper as a "loving, good person".
Speaking to the BBC, he said: "I've put it out there he wasn't perfect… but regardless of that nobody deserves to be killed by the police unless there is an imminent or direct threat to the public, which at that moment in time, from what I'm hearing, he was not."
During the chase, police used a tactic where they collided with the car they were pursuing to force it to stop.
Locals said they heard gunshots and a police helicopter hovering overhead.
Mr Kaba died in hospital about two hours after he was shot.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has opened an investigation, as is standard after a police shooting.
It said in a statement: "Our thoughts and sympathies are with all of those affected by this terrible incident.
"Our investigation remains in the very early stages."

Something off. Either he got murdered or the police knew he was someone known to carry a strap. Either way, let's have some answers. People get into police chases across the UK every day. The majority of them are white. Would be great to find out why they chose to shoot him.
Most officers don't even carry guns too?
