Man Shot In Police Altercation At Sydney Train Station

A man has been shot in an altercation with police at a Sydney train station.

The man was speaking with officers from the Police Transport Command just before 2.45 pm near the Cambelltown station when an altercation occurred.

He allegedly threatened officers with a knife. Police said they deployed a taser, but the man continued his threats.

The man was then shot, suffering a single gunshot wound to his stomach area.

He has been taken to Liverpool hospital.

A crime scene has been established and police officers are currently surrounding the train station.

No other people were hurt in the incident, and police are encouraging members of the public to steer clear of the area.

A Critical Incident Investigation team is now investigating the circumstances around the shooting.

A spokesperson for Transport for NSW told 10 daily that there has been no disruption to the train or bus timetable as a result of the incident.

However, the bus stop at Campbelltown station has been moved a short way down the road and police officers are directing commuters to this new location.
