Residents were in a stir after an armed offender squad was spotted in Greerton earlier this afternoon.

Police were notified of a breach of peace on Devon St in Greerton at 1.05pm.

A police spokesperson says the people, known to each other, were arguing and then a resident called police to say that one of them was in possession of a firearm.

“An armed offender squad was called as a precaution, given that there may have been a fire arm.”

“No one has been hurt and the man in question talked to police and has been taken into custody."

Surrounding roads were blocked off until police evaluated the situation.

Been watching too many rap videos. Arguing in public? Scary stuff. All talk.
