A man has been shot dead after he lunged at police with a knife during a violent confrontation on Sydney‘s northern beaches.

Police were called to a home on Belinda Place, Newport shortly before 2am on Thursday following reports of a domestic dispute.

Officers tried to speak with a 39-year-old man, who lunged at officers with a knife.

Two officers were forced to discharge their firearms.

The man suffered critical injuries and died at the scene, despite desperate attempts by officers who performed CPR to try to revive him. 

A critical incident team has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident, which will also be subject to independent review.

Police say the domestic dispute involved the man and his parents.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

It’s been a horror night in Sydney with a notorious underworld figure also shot dead weeks after he was released from prison.

Mahmoud ‘Brownie’ Ahmad, known as the ‘Mr Big’ of Sydney’s crime world was shot outside a Greenacre home in the city’s south-west on Wednesday night.

The gunman remains on the run. 

Ahmad was recently released from jail after served five years for the manslaughter of another underworld figure at a Sydney scrap yard in 2016.
