Armed man tasered by cops in Sydney
DRAMATIC footage shows the moment an armed man was shot with a taser outside a police station in Sydney's west this morning.
In the footage obtained by the Nine Network, the man can be seen surrounded by officers outside Granville Police Station - and he appears to be carrying a knife.

Despite being told several times by police to drop an item in his hands, the man refuses and officers can be seen firing a taser.

The man will be taken to Westmead Hospital for assessment.
