Officers have stated that Mr. Crisp was shot after he had made threats against them. The man had just started talking to the officers when the shooting took place in the middle of their interaction. It was requested that an ambulance crew be dispatched at 6:50 in the morning.
The official who worked for the law enforcement agency and was responsible for his death was a senior constable who was assigned to the traffic highway patrol command, according to the authorities. A resident of the neighborhood has reported that she heard shouting, followed by a gunshot, and then saw law enforcement officers surrounding a man who was lying on the ground. Another local resident expressed their point of view on the matter by saying, “I heard the shots, but I thought it was just someone having a go at some cockatoos with a cork gun.”
Following Mr. Crisp’s transportation to the Wilton parachute base, he was then flown to the Liverpool Hospital by helicopter. His condition was critical but stable last night, and he remained in the hospital throughout the day today. Both the police homicide squad and the police Professional Standards Command have opened investigations into the shooting to determine what exactly happened.
