The moment that police officers ended a stand-off at a South Tyneside bookmakers has been captured on camera.
Armed police and trained negotiators attended the Coral bookmakers in Grange Road, Jarrow, yesterday evening to reports of a siege with four hostages being held inside the premises.
The incident began at around 5.45pm and lasted for three hours, ending when a suspect emerged from the store and was 'shot' at by police.
The video clip, shot by Gary Marshall and shared on his Facebook page in a public post, shows officers fire at the man, and rush over to arrest him as he falls to the floor.
Earlier today, Northumbria Police confirmed officers used an AEP, a type of baton round which replaced rubber bullets, to bring the situation to an end.
