A knife-wielding man who allegedly ran at police officers in a Sydney car park has been shot in the leg.
The 40-year-old allegedly approached the two transport police officers at a shopping centre car park in Bankstown, southwest Sydney, on Saturday night.
"Police will allege the man produced a knife and ran towards them, threatening the officers," NSW Police said in a statement.
Police fired shots and the man suffered a leg injury. He has been taken to Liverpool Hospital under guard.
The police statement said a critical incident team will now investigate, and the probe will be independently reviewed.
