Homi­cide probe in cop shoot­ing

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

THE homi­cide squad will in­ves­ti­gate the fa­tal po­lice shoot­ing of a man who is said to have threat­ened of­fi­cers with an axe on the NSW Cen­tral Coast.

Two of­fi­cers were con­fronted by the axe-wielding man af­ter forc­ing their way through the front door of the Erina home on Fri­day night, NSW Po­lice said. Po­lice had been called about a dis­pute be­tween neigh­bours but rushed to the door af­ter see­ing flames com­ing from the side of the house — and that is when the man ap­peared with the axe.
