ZODYS department store in Sydney’s east is on lockdown after a gunman opened fire inside.
The Sydney siege began when a gunman with a semi-automatic weapon opened fire outside the store on Tuesday night, killing one person and injuring four others.
The gunman is understood to have entered the store with a gun, which he fired into the store’s rear wall.
“It’s very chaotic right now,” said one store employee, who wished to remain anonymous.
Two customers, who were also inside the store, managed to flee the building.
ABC News’ Robyn O’Connor, John Wicks and David Williams contributed to this report.
