Fatal shooting at international security summit

An international security summit was put on lockdown in Singapore after police shot dead a man who crashed his car through the barriers at a checkpoint, reports Sky News. The 34-year-old, who had two passengers in the vehicle, was stopped at the police checkpoint near the Shangri-La Hotel, which was hosting the top-level conference, just after 4am (local time). But when officers asked him to open the boot of his car, he sped off.

Police say the car crashed through police barricades and was "endangering the lives of the officers" before they "opened fire at the vehicle to stop further danger." The driver was killed and one of his passengers was wounded and taken to hospital. All three men in the car were Singaporean.
