Corey Selby Death, Obituary – Corey Selby, 48, was shot dead by NSW Police in the state’s north-west in a conflict out the front of the Tenterfield Police Station, after he pointed a gun at officers just after 5pm on Thursday. A father of two who was armed was shot and killed by NSW Police in the state’s northwest. Selby allegedly threatened his wife Cindy inside the residence while pointing a gun outside, according to a neighbor. Cindy and their two kids drove to the police station while neighbors called the police.
According to the NSW Police, they had been keeping an eye on Selby’s welfare prior to the altercation and the shooting. The paramedics from the NSW ambulance managed to save him, but he died right away. Police had to shoot the man, according to interim commander Steve Egginton.”Police were summoned to a workplace reporting a concern for the welfare of this particular individual,” said Egginton.
They responded to it, and the situation culminated in a fight taking place in front of the Tenterfield Police Station. The person must defend himself if a gun is pointed in their direction. Police never go to work expecting to pull their handgun at any given time in their careers.
Egginton claims that the man’s family has been devastated by the problem. “We are providing them with any assistance we can so that they will understand the process we must take in order to give them some explanations as to how this happened,” he said.
“We are doing everything we can to help everyone taking part in this. For our police, it was highly confronting, and anyone in the neighborhood who may have heard or seen what was happening also found it to be very terrifying.
The individual and police, according to him, had only sometimes interacted in the past.
Police will conduct a critical incident investigation into the incident’s circumstances, including the use of a police weapon.
That investigation will be examined by impartial reviewers.
