Man dies after police firearm discharged in Milton Keynes

A man has died after police fired gun shots at a property in Milton Keynes where a second man was found dead and a young child seriously injured.

Thames Valley Police (TVP) said in a statement officers were called to an address in Denmead, Two Mile Ash, at about 9.40am on Saturday and made a forced entry after acting on information from a witness.

Inside they found a man in his 30s who was later confirmed dead, as well as the child who had serious injuries.

Thames Valley Police has launched an investigation following a serious incident in Two Mile Ash, Milton Keynes.

The IOPC has also launched an investigation after this incident.

They also located a man in his 20s, with the force saying it was understood officers deployed a Taser before shots were fired at the man. The man subsequently required first aid and treatment from ambulance crews but was pronounced dead at the scene, TVP said.

The young child was taken to hospital.

Police said the dead men’s next of kin had been notified, and that officers were likely to remain on watch outside the property for several days.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) confirmed it had received a referral from TVP and said its investigation was “at a very early stage and no further information can be provided at this time”.

“Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragic incident,” the IOPC statement added.

TVP assistant chief constable Christian Bunt, said: “What has happened this morning can only be described as absolutely tragic and will no doubt have an impact on the community.

“Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by this incident.

“Our major crime unit is working closely with the IOPC to understand exactly what has happened.

More than 1,500 police officers and staff have faced examination by the IOPC for their conduct in two years.

Our new outcomes reports outline what our investigations find, and what happens following misconduct hearings and criminal proceedings.

“At this stage, no one else is being sought in relation to this investigation and we are seeking to support everyone involved.

“We are also asking members of the public who may have information to please call 101 or report online quoting reference 20210626–0652 or if they wish to remain anonymous they can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
