A female policeman who killed a male prisoner in a Queensland hospital on Saturday night was forced to use deadly force & # 39 ;, say police officers.
The man, who has not been identified but who has been in police custody since Friday, would have been thrown to the officer after he was taken to a hospital for a "bogus disease", reported the courier mail.
The 28-year-old was treated at the Ipswich hospital in the southwest of Brisbane when he reportedly attacked an officer at around nine o'clock.

The officer fired her weapon at the man, who died shortly afterwards despite medical treatment of the staff in the hospital.
A police source told the courier post that the female officer had to use deadly coercion.
Inspector Michael Trezise told the reporters that on Sunday he understood that the man had been taken away from his arrest to the hospital, where he was separated from other patients and was under surveillance on Friday afternoon.
Mr. Trezise said that he had left the chief commissioner that he had been attacked with relatively serious facial injuries & # 39 ;.
& # 39;[It’s a] very traumatic incident, "he said.
It has received considerable support from the police union and the police family, but it is a very disturbing incident for everyone to go through.
& # 39;[Firing a weapon is] the hardest decision an operational officer can make, it is made under stress and time pressure, and it is extremely difficult. & # 39;
The chief commissioner was expected to be interviewed late on Saturday evening.
The Ethical Standards Command investigates the shooting on behalf of the state clone in collaboration with the Commission for Crime and Corruption.
Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart is aware of the situation.
