At 11.20pm on Sunday 9 February Kent Police received a call to attend an incident in Hersden, Canterbury. Local officers initially attended, followed by firearms officers and police negotiators.

A 16 year-old woman inside the house received stab wounds and a 40 year old man was shot by police. Two knives were recovered. The man was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition. The young woman also remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition. They are members of the same family.

As this is a police shooting the matter has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which is mandatory.
