A man with a gun has fired shots from a house in Launceston in Tasmania as police remain on the scene and attempt to negotiate with the man to surrender.
Several shots have been fired since the stand-off began at 4:30pm on Friday when police arrived at the property as part of an ongoing investigation.
Police negotiators are on the scene and have evacuated homes in Reatta Road, Trevallyn, ‘as a precaution’, police have said.
Police said no-one has been injured and they hope to safely resolve the matter as soon as possible.
Residents are being advised to avoid the Reatta Road area until further notice.
More to come.
