Police armed with guns and Armed Offenders Squad members reportedly forced Queen Street East in Levin to go into a temporary lockdown after an incident occurred this afternoon.

A Police spokesperson told thisquality that AOS members responded to the scene as a precaution.

Cordons were in place between Rugby Street and Queenwood Road during the afternoon and stood down shortly before 4 pm.

A loudspeaker was used by the authorities attending to communicate with the person inside of the residence, telling them to surrender.
