Police Ethical Standards are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at Ipswich rail station. And with the station closed as a crime scene, commuters faced delays for a second day.

Rhys Court reports.


Officers called to the disturbance at Ipswich Station say they were forced to fire on a man, after he attacked them.

The man was hit in the chest and died from his wounds soon after.

The 24 year old, armed with a knife, had reportedly been threatening commuters on the platform.

CCTV and police body cameras are confirmed to have recorded the event, and several eye witnesses are being questioned.

Buses will replace trains until Ipswich station is reopened.

And Sydney police have charged a woman with drink driving and other offences after her vehicle allegedly crashed into pedestrians.

A four-year-old girl and a woman believed her aunt are fighting for their lives in hospital.

Two other people are in serious condition.

The 50-year-old driver faces seven offences.

Inspector Katie Wild: “The police will allege that she was texting sending and receiving messages at the time.”

She will appear in court next month.
