Police who Tasered a knifeman 11 times, hit him with a car and shot him were using reasonable force, a watchdog has found.
Police were called to reports of a disturbance in Brent, in the early hours of 8 October 2015.
A man who had been acting violently was searched by a police officer, who said he felt the blade of a large knife through his clothes.
Th IPCC heard that Mr Hive resisted arrest, causing police to leave the building for their safety.
Officers said the man followed them outside and refused to follow their instructions to show his hands.
The man walked away and police followed him due to fears he was still in possession of a knife.
An officer described seeing the man produce two knives from his pockets.
Another two officers arriving at the scene got out of their car and drew their Tasers.
When the man refused to drop his knives, a warning was given and Taser fired.
Officers at the scene said the man began slashing at the Taser wires with his knives.
When the Taser apparently had no effect, they then struck him with a patrol car before shooting him.
Mr Hive, 30, was taken to hospital with chest and arm injuries after the incident on October 8 2015.
An investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) found that officers had used "necessary and proportionate" force.
Officers reported that he had refused to drop his blades and was a danger to himself and others.
Mr Hive was armed with two knives and a screwdriver and later convicted of possession of offensive weapons and common assault, the IPCC said.
Footage from the scene showed a bread knife, a carving knife and a screwdriver lying in the road.
Mr Hive subsequently admitted possessing offensive weapons and common assault, for which he received a suspended sentence.
IPCC Commissioner Cindy Butts said: "Officers were faced with a man armed with knives who seemed intent on using his weapons on a public street.
"They needed to stop him from causing serious injury or death to them, a member of the public, or himself.
"Taser was fired a total of 11 times. The man was found to be wearing extra clothing, which we believe reduced the effectiveness of Taser on at least one occasion.
"Yet he still posed a real danger to officers, leaving them with no option but to use further force.
“Following a thorough investigation, we found that the force used was necessary and proportionate.
“In the course of this investigation we took accounts from officers, witnesses and the man who was shot by police.
"More than 70 witness statements were taken, and CCTV, body-worn video and footage from police vehicles was examined.
"Downloads from Taser, radio and telephone transmissions were assessed and considered in the course of the investigation."
