Off-duty reserve officer kills man

A man who was shot by an off-duty reserve officer early this morning, died in hospital a short time later, police said.

According to reports, the officer was inside his Fox Hill home when he heard a “commotion” outside.

The officer, who armed himself with his licensed shotgun, went outside to investigate. Police said the officer observed a man attempting to break into his neighbor’s car.

Once the suspect saw the officer, he “acted in a threatening manner”. As a result, the officer shot him, police said.

Police have not identified the victim.
