A volley of gunshots "like fireworks" were heard by neighbours as police shot dead a man who was threatening a woman with a knife in north London.
Pictures taken by eyewitnesses showed a middle-aged woman in a pink blanket being comforted by a police officer as she was led away from the house in Shepperton Road in Islington.
I was woken up to shouts and immediately afterwards to what sounded like four or five bangs. They were gunshots.
I think I heard five gunshots, but a gunshot in real life doesn't sound like it does on TV. It sounded like loud bangs on a door. Bang, bang, bang. Then I realised, if it's somebody banging on the door, why can I hear it?
I thought I heard fireworks, that's what it sounded like to me. It was around 1am. The shots didn't last long at all, but it wasn't a standard type of firework sound. It sounded different.
