Sounds a bit odd. BBC report says it was a fight with several men attacking another men. Then the police turned up and shots were fired. Got to assume there's a lot of detail missing there.

Not going near the body after they’ve shot him either so must suspect explosives.

They clearly shoot him there and the other copper has a stun gun drawn so they were taking no risks.

Someone I work with, his mate works in building next to another building. Apparently the bloke ran in the other building stabbing people.

He can see the dead body on the bridge from his office.

Wow. Justice as it should be served!!!

I hope the officer doesn’t get disciplined, but the way this country works he just shot an unarmed man in the back.

How do you know he’s unarmed?

He also had a gun, going by eye witnesses/news.

Just watched the video of him getting shot, someone takes the knife away before they shoot him. No way the police would have shot to kill, if he wasn't still armed.

Assuming so as a guy walked away with a fucking huge knife.

Either way I hope the officers and anyone involved in disarming the nutter are commended.
Other reports saying he had a suicide vest on, so that may be why he was shot.

All speculation atm, but I hope no one innocent is seriously hurt.

Fucking hell, the video's more graphic than I was expecting. Size of the knife that was wrestled from him, good work by the police and whoever helped out

And as has already been said, I hope no people were badly injured in the attack.

Yeah sorry, I mean the video in the thread where he's taken out. I don't think there's video of the initial attacks, or at least none I'm in a hurry to see

How can anyone say that? Based on the footage shown I don't see how you can come to any other conclusion than the response units still believed that there was still a significant threat.

Because they're either attention seeking or completely deluded.
