A SYDNEY woman is in hospital after being shot by police when she attacked officers with a knife.

Police were called to an address on Iron Street in North Parramatta at about 1.30am (AEDT) Sunday, with reports that the 48-year-old woman was threatening a man with a knife.

When they arrived, the officers were themselves threatened by the woman.

Police failed to subdue the woman with capsicum spray, and when she again attacked them, a female officer discharged a number of shots.

She has sustained what police called a serious injury, and is undergoing surgery at Westmead Hospital.

A 23-year-old man has also been treated for a cut to the neck.
