A man who was shot by police officers after allegedly threatening them with a knife at a Sydney train station is tonight undergoing emergency surgery.
9News understands the man, aged in his 30s or 40s, suffered a stomach wound after he allegedly lunged at police with a 30-centimetre knife about 3.45pm today.
Officers from the Police Transport Command were speaking with the man near Campbelltown Railway Station after he allegedly tried entering without a valid ticket, before an altercation occurred.

The man allegedly challenged police with the knife on Hurley Street, just outside the station, and police deployed a taser that was unable to stop him from continuing to threaten officers.
“He again confronted the police with a knife, which has been described to me as about 30cm long, aggressively confronted the police and a single shot was fired into this male," NSW Police assistant commissioner Peter Thurtell told reporters this afternoon.
“It is concerning that anybody would carry a knife in public. Policing is a dangerous job, we all know that.”
