” An official investigation is said to have found that one of the victims of the Sydney siege died as a result of police gunfire.

  Australian media reports said Katrina Dawson was hit by a police bullet when officers began a shoot-out with hostage-taker Man Haron Monis.

  The gunman took 17 people hostage at the Lindt Cafe in the city’s business district in December, holding them for 16 hours.

  The stand-off ended when police burst into the cafe, threw flash grenades and opened fire on Monis.

  The reports said preliminary investigations had shown Ms Dawson was killed by fragments of a police bullet that ricocheted before hitting her in the heart. “
