Mr Morgan, who previously went by the name of Said, was a detective in the NSW police force in the 1990s.

In 1995 he became aware of allegations that his brother-in-law, Mansour Suha, had been sexually abusing three young girls, two of them his young relatives. He then shot and killed Mr Suha in May 1995 at a home in Sydney's Oakhurst.

In an action described in court as a "Clint Eastwood notion of justice", Mr Morgan emptied his service revolver, shooting the man six times.

"It was bang, bang and then he kept coming forward and bang, bang; before I realised it, the fifth or sixth shot was fired," Mr Morgan told the NSW Supreme Court.

On August 1, 1997, a jury rejected the Crown argument that it was a revenge shooting, finding Mr Morgan instead acted out of fear for the girls' safety.
