"Within minute’s officers attended the scene, a forced entry was made into a property, acting on witness information," said a police spokesman.

"On entry officers observed a man in his thirties, who appeared to be deceased, as well as a young child with serious injuries," he said.

Police also found a man in his twenties in the property.

"At this early stage of the investigation, it is understood that officers deployed Taser, before shots were fired at the man," said the spokesman

"Immediate first aid was deployed and ambulance crews treated the man in his twenties, but sadly he was later pronounced dead at the scene," he added.

The cause of death has not been revealed but a mandatory referral has been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) and they have launched an independent investigation.

The young child was removed from the property and was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Meanwhile the man in his thirties was sadly also confirmed dead at the scene.

The next of kin of both men have now been informed.

A scene watch is in place around the address in Denmead and is likely to be in place for a number of days.
