The police officer shot dead Queensland road

The police officer shot dead Queensland road

One officer died in 2016 in a vehicle crash according to their police memorial.

Shots were fired at police on Wallers Road in Seventeen Mile about 2pm and an officer was hit.

Rick Maddison was declared dead this morning after he was shot dead by police.

Now the man, who allegedly shot dead Senior Constable Forte on Monday afternoon, is dead after taking several shots to the chest.

Maddison was killed by authorities after fleeing the house and firing on police, Queensland Police Assistant Commissioner Tony Wright said.

'We have a person contained and at my last advice we were negotiating with that person, ' Police Commissioner Ian Stewart said at a press conference on Monday night.

Flowers are being left outside a Toowoomba police station in honour of Senior Constable Forte.

"He has been challenged by police at that point in time - he has fired at those police", he told reporters on Tuesday.

Whilst the full circumstances of today's tragic incident are still being determined, I want to highlight the tremendous bravery and tenacity of our police officers and the incredible dangers they face on a daily basis in keeping our community safe.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has sent condolences to Senior Constable Forte's friends and family.

"I know was it was completely unexpected and Brett sadly never had a chance", Queensland Police Union chief executive Ian Leavers said.

With the gunman still on the run, an emergency situation has been declared under the Public Safety Preservation Act at 3.40pm.

Police have not confirmed details about the suspect's weapon.

"This is a stark reminder that our police officers, every day, literally, put their life on the line to protect us from mongrels like this", Mr Mander said.

Police cordoned off a large section of the area, forcing some locals to sleep in their cars.

"As you can understand, it's an extremely traumatic time for that family".
