Police have confirmed a 31-year-old man was shot by officers at 9.37am this morning, after they received reports of concern for the public due to a potentially dangerous individual.
Witnesses say they saw an injured man, who they believed to be carrying an axe, in the street after hearing what they thought could have been gun shots.
One eyewitness, who was doing a training course at the Case Centre when the incident took place, said: “We’d only been in there a few minutes when we heard two loud bangs some screaming and there was just a big commotion.
“We looked outside and there was a guy with his back against the kerb lying on the floor. There was blood everywhere.
