When should police shoot?

You know me and my feelings about shooting innocent people. But as I was reading the story Man Killed in London Not Linked to Blasts from Yahoo! News, I noticed the following quote:

"The man shot at the Stockwell subway station was identified as Jean Charles de Menezes, 27. Witnesses said he was wearing a heavy, padded coat when plainclothes police chased him into a subway car, pinned him to the ground and shot him in the head and torso."

Sure, you've got the right to wear whatever you want, when you want, and shouldn't receive a death sentence for poor fashion sense... but, from what we know at this moment (which isn't much), I sure have sympathy for the police in this situation!
