I was at home and just heard alot of sirens around that time. When i dropped a friend off at the station around 5.50pm there was still a few cops about with the lane taped off. Pretty crazy.

someone I know who was having lunch in eastwood at the time told me about this. Cops had a shoot out with some guy in an alley way near Progress Ave. He's been shot a few times and is in hospital. Heard that on the radio.

in eastwood...?

but why would you need a gun in eastwood even if it were a drug dealer... Eastwood isn't even populated by any gang members anymore..

I like how "the guy turned the gun on himself". Just reminiscent of suspects that fall down flights of stairs.

Maybe we'll later get a press release that he was a terrorist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Charles_de_Menezes), intent on blowing up a Sydney landmark like......Eastwood.

There are some of the "new gens" around. But hanging outside the church shuffling while attempting to look tough doesn't usually require a gun.

Too cynical. Its very easy to sledge from the foot path but these men and women have to put themselves in harms way only to cop abuse and derision from Joe public day in day out. If the bloke is armed with a firearm and aggressive in a public place, no problem game on i say.

I (for the first time i might add) saw some cops take down a couple of rampaging (think meth) blokes last week, and i can tell you its a good thing we have them (cops that is :P )

The only difference between cynicism and realism, in our society, is the spelling.


If the bloke is armed with a firearm and aggressive in a public place, no problem game on i say.

If the report was that the cops shot this gun-toting asshole rather than the guy "shooting himself", then I'd be cheering the cops on.

As you say, there's no dishonour in taking down an armed criminal, who was evidently quite willing to use his firearm in a crowded area, with lethal force.

good thing the gunfight was confined to the alleyway...

If it was on the parallel st with all the other grocery stores, I'd imagine there would have been quite a few fatalities as it is quite busy there (I do my grocery shopping there once a week)

I think there's more to this story... sounds suss how the gunman shot himself in the head...

Eastwood used to be dodgy, gangs frequent the area, probably much lesser now, why would a guy carry a gun around the area? Getting ready to rob someone?

Fkn funny about kids shooting birds....wtf

Today I walked past and the area is still blocked off, so many curious asians gathering, like a movie is shooting or something haha

I witnessed this exact thing last Thursday night. F*cking L to the MAO.

IMO, Eastwood is pretty safe, just lots of elders going about their grocery, nice people at the cafes and kids wettin themsleves in the fountain that is mostly dry.

Red Rooster - ahah i can't believe that shop is still surviving. The local one here in Gladesville shutdown a few months ago, I was pissed.

There's always lots of asians in Eastwood - I am yet to see a white person there..... ok maybe not quite that extreme.

Also, Raymo, I never see your 5 around there... now I will look out each time to see if I can see it when I'm there.

I've played "spot the Caucasian" and always managed to find one lol
in all honesty, I think they move away from the area (not sure why) and Asians just replace them. On the topic of racial segregation anyone else read the media beat up on caucasians leaving the public school system

The "other side"...now moved to both sides of the tracks. Most (white) people shop at West Ryde now, its newer, cleaner, more range then Eastwood(for what we buy anyway)

Red Rooster of Eastwood went downhill after it changed hands...not quite the same ever since.

Looks like from what they can figure out, the dead gunman was in the proccess of an attemted mass shooting with a Gloc pistol. He was an experienced shooter, frightening to think what might have happened if the cops had not intervened:shock: :shock:
