A man was killed by police after threatening officers with an axe on the NSW Central Coast on Friday night. Police were called to a home in Erina, near Gosford, over a domestic dispute between neighbours but they found a house fire. Two officers forced entry into the man’s home and found him wielding an axe. According to the sources, three shots were fired to the man, two of them hitting him. A woman who arrived at the scene this morning said she knew the man, that he had mental health issues, and â€œhe had slipped through the cracksâ€. NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Max Mitchell said the man was known to police as a â€œsuspected drug addict with potential mental health issuesâ€.
