The man allegedly shot six officers several times before the police shot him in the leg.

He was treated at the scene before being taken to Canberra Hospital, where he will undergo surgery, a police spokeswoman said. His condition is not yet known.

The staff at the service station was forced to hide in a back room during the alleged shooting, 9News reported.

A team of NSW critical incidents will now investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident, police said.

That investigation will be subject to an independent review.
