A hostage who died during a siege in a Sydney cafe was killed when she was struck by fragments of a police bullet, an inquest has been told.

Lawyer Jeremy Gormly told Glebe Coroner’s Court Katrina Dawson was killed as police stormed the cafe to end the 16-hour siege last month.

Ms Dawson was struck by six fragments of a police bullet that had ricocheted off a hard surface, he said.

An inquest into the deadly siege is determining exactly how gunman Man Horan Monis and two hostages died.
