SHOT BY A BURGLAR.

[ Electric Telegraph. Copyright] [Per Press Association. 1

SYDNEY, June 3.

A desperate affray took place in Maoleay street at an early hour this morning between a police constable and a burglar, during which the former was shot. It appears that about three o’clock in the morning Constable Sutherland, a native of New Zealand, who was cn duty in Macleay street, saw a burglar making off from a house which he had successfully entered. On the policeman attempting to arrest the man a severe straggle took place. At last the burglar, whose name is Morrison, seeing that he was being worsted, drew a revolver, and shot Constable Sutherland in the groin. The wound caused the latter to let go his man, but before doing so he struck the burglar a terrific blow on the head with his baton, Morrison then made off, but was captured later in the day. Constable Sutherland died about three hours after being shot.
