Who was Ben Baker?

Ben Baker, 33, had only been together with his partner for 24 hours before he was hit with a hail of bullets in a parking lot in Marsden last week.

Police can be heard asking the 33-year-old to drop the knife, which he refused to do, instead taking steps toward the armed officers.

Shots were then fired at Baker, who later died of his injuries at the hospital.

Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said police had received several calls about the man with reports that he was threatening McDonald’s staff, the Courier Mail reports.

“When he came to the police, obviously the police took action,” Carroll said.

Knives can be just as dangerous as guns.

The commissioner said an employee was being held against her will at knifepoint when police arrived on the scene.

Statement

Queensland Police released a statement at the time confirming the shooting.

“He was transported to Logan Hospital with serious injuries, in critical condition,” the statement said.

“There is no ongoing threat to the community and no one else has been injured.”
Acting Chief Superintendent Mel Adams said police were called to the scene after reports of a man threatening people with a knife at the Marsden Park shopping center.

“Police found an armed man at McDonald’s in Marsden on Chambers Flat Rd,” Acting Chief Superintendent Adams said.

“The police tried to negotiate with that person, but that person ran to the police.”

He added that officers tried to subdue the man using a Taser before he was shot multiple times.

Baker is understood to have recently been released from prison, with his heartbroken partner and some of his friends paying tribute to the 33-year-old on social media.

“I had a night, a day with him after being locked up for two years,” she wrote.

No McDonald’s crew or customers dining at the venue were injured, the corporation said in a statement, and employees offered support and assisted police.
