A man has been shot in the leg by police after allegedly stabbing an officer in the hand on Sydney’s northern beaches.

Police were called to a home on Warringah Road, Narraweena, about 5.20pm on Friday when they were approached by the man who was allegedly armed with a knife.

A confrontation ensued and the man allegedly stabbed a male officer in the hand and threw a fire extinguisher, hitting him on the head.

Police said a second officer shot the man and he was wounded in his leg. He was taken to hospital under police guard.

The first officer was also taken to hospital for treatment. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

A critical incident has been declared and the independent police area command will investigate.

That investigation will also be independently reviewed, police said.
