Armed police arrested a man in Karori after receiving reports that someone had aimed a gun out of a car window in the Wellington suburb.
Officials were seen near Karori Mall and Mobil on Karori Road at around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
A police spokeswoman said officers visited and arrested a man on Burrows Ave, about half a mile from Karori Mall.
A firearm was seized.
Witness James Craw was on his way to the supermarket when he saw a “massive armed police presence” with dozens of police vehicles and officers with AR15 rifles around the Mobil gas station.
Two streets towards Karori Park are closed, he said.
