Lives not in danger: Ambos

PARAMEDICS have told a hearing into the police shooting death of mentally ill man Adam Salter that officers' lives were not in danger when the fatal shot was fired.

Karl Johnstone was present when Mr Salter, 36, was shot dead in his Lakemba home in November 2009.

According to the Herald, he told the Police Integrity Commission Mr Salter continuously stabbed himself in the throat with a knife but had not threatened others.

He said he heard a police officer shout "Taser" before hearing a bang and seeing Mr Salter fall to the floor.

A PIC investigation into the shooting was launched last year.

The first of a series of public hearings began on Monday and is expected to continue until the end of the week.
