David Cameron has appealed for a calm response to the inquest verdict that Mark Duggan was lawfully killed by a police marksman despite being unarmed.
The Prime Minister said he hoped people would respect the "proper judicial process" and welcomed the stance taken by Mr Duggan's aunt Carole, who said she wanted "no more violence".
Mr Duggan's family plan to hold a vigil in Tottenham, north London, at the weekend and there are concerns that the event could spark unrest in a repeat of what happened immediately after he was killed in 2011.
Today the Metropolitan Police continued efforts to rebuild trust over the controversial killing, which sparked a wave of rioting and looting across the country.
Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe met political representatives from the capital and prominent figures from Tottenham to discuss how the police can improve relationships.
Speaking after meeting Britain's most senior police officer, the Rev Nims Obunge, who buried Mr Duggan, said: " We had an interesting meeting with the commissioner and he has clearly expressed concern about what would happen in Tottenham.
"We've just looked at the best way forward to ensure that the concerns that the family genuinely have about the verdict can be expressed in an effective fashion at the vigil this weekend, and we also want to ensure that policing within our community is done in a healthy fashion.
"The message from the family is that this vigil is intended to be a very peaceful vigil. We expect that anybody who would come would stand with the family. It is a vigil in remembrance and respecting the life and death of Mark Duggan. His children will be there, and we don't expect anybody to come to where Mark Duggan's children are to create unrest or anarchy."
The 29-year-old's family reacted furiously yesterday as jurors concluded that he was lawfully killed by police.
Mr Nims, who was with them at the Royal Courts of Justice as the conclusions were revealed, said: " They are hurting. It was a very challenging verdict. Hearing that your son was unarmed at the time he was shot, that the jury believed he was unarmed at the time he was shot, that was challenging for the family."
Mr Duggan, a father of six, was gunned down when police stopped the taxi in which he was travelling in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011.
They believed that he planned to collect a gun from another man, Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, and then go on to Broadwater Farm, also in Tottenham.
The inquest jury of seven women and three men found by a majority verdict that it was most likely that Mr Duggan had the gun in the taxi, but threw it on to a nearby grass verge before he was shot.
Their findings sparked emotional scenes both in and outside the Royal Courts of Justice, and today the Prime Minister appealed for calm.
Speaking to BBC London, he said: " I very much respect Mark Duggan's aunt for saying they want to pursue their case through the courts rather than on the streets, I think that's absolutely right.
"These issues raise very strong emotions but I hope people can react calmly and recognise that we have proper judicial processes in this country and they are the ones that must be followed and respected."
The Duggan family are hoping to apply for a judicial review of the inquest findings. Following the conclusion, his aunt Carole Duggan cried out "No justice, no peace" - but she insisted she was not calling for a repeat of the rioting which followed the shooting.
On BBC Radio 4's Today programme she said: "No more demonstrations, no more violence. We will have to fight this, go through the struggle, peacefully through the right channels, to get justice for as long as it takes."
So far his relatives have declined to meet police to discuss the case.
Both she and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg raised questions about the original investigation into the shooting by watchdog the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
The IPCC has previously come under fire for failing to contact Mr Duggan's family in the immediate aftermath of his death and initially wrongly telling journalists that he had shot at police.
