Police in New South Wales conducted a major operation after a 39-year-old man armed with knives and holding a note indicating there was a bomb in his car entered the Nepean Hospital in Penrith.

It is currently understood that the man drove his car into the ambulance bay, left the doors of his vehicle open and walked into the entrance of a building where he made threats to the personnel present while brandishing several knives.

He then rushed towards the police officers who tried to disarm him and was subsequently shot in the stomach.

A woman who was at a doctor’s appointment when the situation unfolded said: “I was actually sitting in the doctor’s office with my partner in a consultation and all of a sudden there was a gunshot.”

“It’s honestly giving me goosebumps right now. Who knows what could’ve happened?”

The man left a note that contained a specific threat about an explosive device in his grey vehicle. The bomb squad and riot officers were then called to the scene as it was unclear whether he had any accomplices. The bomb squad is going through his vehicle now.

A statement from New South Wales Health said the Nepean emergency department remained closed: “Staff is able to exit the facility using the north block exit. If your car is in ED carpark you may have to wait.”

“Staff starting their shift need to enter via north block entrance.”

It always makes me suspicious when they don’t identify the perp.
