Police shoot man allegedly armed with knife in Sydney

Police have shot a man they claim confronted them with a knife in inner-city Sydney.

The 32-year-old man allegedly confronted officers called to Chisholm Street in Darlinghurst for a welfare check about 4.40pm on Sunday.

"The man allegedly approached officers and NSW Ambulance paramedics whilst armed, before a constable discharged their firearm," NSW Police said in a statement.
"The man was treated at the scene before being taken to St Vincent's Hospital in a stable condition."
Several streets have been closed as police probe the crime scene.
Police said a critical incident team from a different police area command would investigate the incident, which would be subject to an independent review.
Residents told 9News they were shocked by the incident.
"I just heard like a loud bang and a few shouts and that was about it," one said.
"… I thought it was a loud car engine."
