The Sydney florist whose Central Station shop was the scene of a fatal police shooting yesterday has spoken about the incident, telling reporters he feels sorry for the man killed during the incident.
Manuel Theoharas, 76, was working at the floristry when a man later identified as Danukul Mokmool, 30, allegedly began knocking over displays and causing a disturbance.
The shop-owner said Mokmool grabbed a pair of scissors from a nearby table. Theoharas was able to flee into the station.
“I just feel sorry for him, he lose his life, the young man,” Theoharas said, adding “they had no choice. If they didn’t he would have attacked them.”
