Police watchdog investigates Thames Valley force after man shot dead by officers attending call-out

Police are investigating the Thames Valley force after a man was shot dead by officers who attended a call-out to a house where a child was found with serious injuries.

Officers were called to a property in Two Mile Ash, north-west Milton Keynes, at around 9.40am on Saturday and made a forced entry after acting on information from a witness, said Thames Valley Police (TVP) in a statement.

Inside they found a man in his 30s who was later confirmed dead, and a young child with serious injuries. They also located a man in his 20s, with the force saying it was understood officers deployed a Taser before shots were fired at the man. 

He subsequently required first aid and treatment from ambulance crews but was pronounced dead at the scene, TVP said. The young child was taken to hospital.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said a probe is now underway after a police firearm was discharged at the address in Denmead.
