Security footage shows the moment Gunman Lee Matthew Hillier was shot down by police in Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall in 2013.
The new footage released by Queensland Police shows a shirtless Lee Matthew Hillier waving around his gun and smoking a cigarette as he walks through the mall after terrified shoppers and workers had been forced to scramble away.
He begged police to shoot him during the 90-minute standoff and is seen in the video repeatedly holding his own gun to his head as heavily-armed officers try to talk to him.
Eventually armed SERT officers fire a volley of rubber bullets into Hillier's side, causing him to leap wildly into the air. He appears to try to shoot his own weapon before it is flung from his hand and he falls to the ground.
Within seconds he is swooped on by half a dozen armed police. Other footage of the event was posted previously showing
