At this stage all we can say with any confidence is that...
"The guy was (alledgedly) armed and (alledgedly) shot at police".
IF the report confirms that he was armed and worse that he shot at police, then absolutely, police were right to take him out, but let's face it, the police have form for covering their own backsides in these situtations and leaking information that later proves to be a can of lies (Menenzes springs to mind).
