Two people have been killed in a shooting outside a police building in Sydney, Australia.
New South Wales Police say the gunman, who witnesses say was dressed in black, had approached a police employee and shot him dead at “point blank range”.
The victim, an IT worker, had been leaving work at the Parramatta-based headquarters at about 4.30pm local time when he was killed.
The gunman then fired at several Special Constables inside the police building.
Three of them came outside and they were joined by several police officers, killing the gunman in the exchange of fire, according to NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione.
Mr Scipione said in a press conference that police were not ruling out any possible motive for the attack, including terrorism but he praised the police officers, saying they had “exhibited enormous bravery”.
He added: “There’s no way you can describe the feeling you have… this man was simply leaving work this afternoon, he was gunned down.
“He was murdered on this very street, it’s a terrible feeling.”
Real estate agent Edwin Almeida said he heard gunshots and saw the man in a black gown pacing and waving a gun outside the police centre, which is in the suburb of Parramatta.
