A police officer fired in the face and another in the neck while responding to a domestic incident in northeastern New South Wales.
The police were summoned to a house assault at Glen Innes, north of Tablelands south of the Queensland border, at 9:50 a.m. last night.
Around an hour later, a male officer shot himself in the face and a senior constable shot his neck to the scene.
The officers of the New England Police District were taken by ambulance to the Glen Innes hospital before being transported to the Gold Coast hospital.
The male officer is in a stable state, while the female official is aware that he is in a serious but stable state. A third official on the scene, a testable female gunner, did not fail.
The response officers set a perimeter and the specialized officers attended the scene at Church Street. At 1140 hours, the body of a 74-year-old man found himself at home and a 59-year-old woman was discovered with minor injuries.
The police are looking for no one else in relation to the incident.
