    A Metropolitan Police officer was shot dead at a police station today by a suspect who turned the gun on himself but is still alive.

    Detectives said a 23-year-old man was arrested by officers at the scene and taken to hospital with a gunshot wound, where he remains in a critical condition.

    Scotland Yard said no police firearms were discharged during the incident, and they were informing the officer’s relatives and supporting them with specialist officers.

    Commissioner Cressida Dick said: ‘This is a truly shocking incident in which one of our colleagues has lost his life in the most tragic circumstances. My heart goes out to his family, direct colleagues and friends.

    ‘We are currently supporting his family and also have a dedicated team providing support to the officers and those in the custody centre who witnessed the shooting.

    ‘When a colleague dies in the line of duty the shockwaves and sadness reverberates throughout the Met and our communities. Policing is a family, within London and nationally, and we will all deeply mourn our colleague.

    ‘We are in the early stages of the investigation and are still working to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident and we will provide further updates when we have them.’

    Scotland Yard said it had referred the incident to the Independent Office for Police Conduct which will lead an independent investigation.
