The police officer suffered critical injuries and has been taken to Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital.

A senior NSW police officer is recovering in hospital after he was twice stabbed by an alleged child sex offender he was attempting to arrest, in Sydney's east yesterday.

Police later issued a statement confirming that officers entered the pub at 3.16pm as part of an investigation.

ABC News have spoken to a witness claiming to have also heard gunshots. Newman was immediately shot dead.

The police officer was taken to St Vincent's hospital with a police escort for emergency surgery, while another man was arrested and taken in handcuffs to Maroubra Police Station less than 300 metres away.

He said the senior officer was "very well regarded by his peers" and that the two other officers who were involved in the incident were "traumatised".

Police Minister Troy Grant, who drove from his home in Dubbo in the state's central west to visit, said nothing unified police more than a "stricken" colleague.

Another witness told reporters: 'I reckon about 4 or 5 shots, easy... bang, bang, bang, bang, bang... we saw blood everywhere... it all just happened so suddenly'.

Lara Alexander said she was alerted to the incident by gunshots.
