A witness has said the woman shot dead by police in Sydney today charged towards officers with a knife, prompting the fatal shot.
The police officer who shot dead a knife-wielding woman in Sydney's west is reportedly "distraught", as a senior officer said capsicum spray, a stun-gun and finally a gun were used to halt the woman.
The woman, aged 22, died almost immediately after being shot in the chest. An earlier version of this story reported the girl was aged in her teens, but this was later clarified by NSW Police.

THE 22-year-old knife wielding woman shot dead by police yesterday had Aspergers.
Courtney Topic had been wandering between cars armed with a knife before she advanced on officers.
The Telegraph understands she had Aspergers, a condition related to autism and can mean sufferers have difficulty relating to others, language skill deficiencies and problems obeying verbal instructions."People will generally accept facts as truth only if the facts agree with what they already believe." - Andy Rooney
