A GP and practice staff have escaped after a patient drew a gun at the clinic, leading to a standoff with police, who shot and killed the patient.

The unidentified GP and their three colleagues at the Junction Family Practice in Nowra, NSW — co-owned by prominent GP Dr Costa Boyages — were left traumatised but physically unharmed.
