A man has been shot dead by police outside a property in London.
Officers were called to an address in Barnet at 9.35pm on Sunday following reports that a man was making threats to kill and in possession of what was believed to be a firearm.
The man had left by the time police arrived, but officers were later called to an address in Cedar Road, Enfield, where a man was shot shortly before 11.50pm.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The man, believed aged in his 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
"A non-police firearm has been recovered from the scene."
The Directorate of Professional Standards is at the scene and the incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission for investigation.
