NSW police shoot man to death in western Sydney following ‘altercation’

NSW Police officers have shot a man dead in western Sydney following what was described as an ‘altercation’.

NSW Police officers have fatally shot a man in western Sydney, the force confirmed on Monday.

Officers said the shooting happened after an “altercation” with the man.

“Officers conducted CPR, but the man could not be revived,” police wrote in a tweet.

“A crime scene is in place and roads are closed around the area. Inquiries are underway.”

A police statement said officers from the Blacktown area command went to a home on Bulah Way in Seven Hills at about 11.20am on Tuesday to “conduct inquiries in relation to an outstanding warrant”.

The statement said there was a “physical confrontation” before the man was shot.

NSW Ambulance paramedics were called for help but they could not save the man’s life.

Police established a crime scene and closed off nearby residential streets.

Aerial footage from the scene showed at least nine police officers standing in the yard of a home.
