Armed officers have fatally wounded a man after responding to reports of a woman being attacked inside a property.

Bedfordshire Police has referred an incident to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) after a man was shot by a firearms officer in Luton.

We were called at approximately 1.30pm today (Wednesday) to reports of a woman being assaulted at a property in Tracey Court, off Hibbert Street.

Armed officers also attended and during the incident a 24-year-old man was shot by an officer. He was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead at 2.50pm.

Both roads will remain closed while investigations are on-going.

Chief Constable Jon Boutcher said: “First and foremost our thoughts are very much with the family of the man involved in this tragic incident.

“The IPCC has been informed, as is standard protocol when someone has died following police contact, and as such it would be inappropriate for us to comment any further at this stage.”
