It is alleged the man was shooting at police.

A man has been shot by police in southeast NSW.

Officers in Queanbeyan responded to reports of a man armed with a firearm and shots being fired on Monaro Street at around 4am on Saturday.

The man was found at a service station and after allegedly shooting towards officers, was himself shot by police.
