  • Description

    Police are preparing for an all-night wait, around the Revesby house where a 21 year old man is holding his wife and baby son hostage.

    The man..armed and said to be dangerous....this afternoon shot and killed his mother-in-law in a car outside the house in Carrington Street.

    He then barricaded himself inside the house, and warned he would shoot anyone who came near.

    Detectives, armed and wearing bullet-proof vests and protective shields, rushed to the scene, surrounded the house and cordoned-off the area.

    Police were told the man had walked out of the house and fired at his mother-in-law with a shotgun, killing her at point blank range. Detective Sergeant Doyle, risked being fired on, to get to the car in which the woman's body was slumped across the seat, and drive it clear.

    Nurse and doctor walking are going to car where dead woman was found. We weren't allowed to shoot the body being taken out.
