A coroner has delayed the inquest into the death of PC David Rathband while he waits for more information.
The Northumbria Police officer was found hanging at his home in Blyth, Northumberland in February after being shot and blinded by gunman Raoul Moat in July 2010.
The hearing was due to be held in Blyth on October 3 but South Northumberland Coroner Eric Armstrong said it will now be an administrative session for interested parties to discuss the issues.
Mr Armstrong confirmed that he has received more information about the officer's death and believes more is to come.
The 43-year-old had recently returned from a trip to Australia where he visited his twin Darren.
Mr Armstrong said: "I am told more detailed information is coming and I want people to have the opportunity to study that before the resumed inquest date."
The hearing will be closed to the press and public, ahead of the resumed inquest which will be held in the open.
