A teenage girl has been shot dead near a Hungry Jacks, in the Sydney suburb of West Hoxton.

A WOMAN armed with a knife has been shot dead near a Hungry Jack's in the Sydney suburb of West Hoxton.

A woman who witnessed the shooting described it as "the worst thing I've witnessed in my whole life".

A worker at a nearby business told news.com.au paramedics tried frantically to revive her.

"They were doing CPR on her, it was pretty full on."

Police were called to the intersection of Cowpasture and Hoxton Park roads at West Hoxton at 11.45am where they say a woman, 22, was involved in a confrontation with police.

A NSW Ambulance spokeswoman confirmed the woman died from a gunshot wound at the scene shortly after.

Witnesses earlier reported that the woman repeatedly lunged at officers who were trying to taser her.

Angela Martin, who was stopped at traffic lights outside the restaurant, told the Daily Telegraph she saw the girl running from police.

"I heard the shot as I was in my bag getting my phone out," Ms Martin said. "I had no idea what was going. I knew someone had been shot, I saw someone fall and saw all the cops run to that person."

"Next thing there were cop cars everywhere, it was a nightmare," she added.

"There were four or five police bent over (her). There were a number of other cops standing by watching."

She said it was "the worst thing I've witnessed in my whole life".

Police addressed the media at 3.30pm local time where they confirmed a male constable "resorted" to using his firearm after the use of capsicum spray and a taser.

"There were a number of tactical options deployed and one officer resorted to using his firearm," Assistant Commissioner Frank Mennilli said.

Mr Mennilli refused to go into specific detail about the incident but did confirm that the woman was 22 years old, lived in the local area and had been walking around with a "large kitchen knife".

Mr Mennilli said the police presence was necessary. "You're better going too big than going too small," he said.

The officer who shot the woman is "distraught" but has yet to be formally interviewed, Mr Mennilli said. He passed on his condolences to the family and friends of the the deceased.

"This is a tragic situation," he said.

A critical incident team from the State Crime Command's Homicide Squad and assisted by investigators from South West Metropolitan Region will now investigate all circumstances surrounding the incident. That investigation will be overseen by the Professional Standards Command.

All information will be provided to the Coroner who will determine the cause of death and make any findings about the events leading to the woman's death.

Hungry Jack's have referred all inquiries to NSW Police.

More soon.
