Toy gun closes Christchurch street
A Christchurch man with a toy gun caused a commotion on Tuesday, closing a suburban street after his fake firearm was reported to police.
The toy gun was seen being played with in Sydenham shortly after 4pm.
Strickland St was closed and a kindergarten on the street was locked down.
A police spokesman said they had treated the incident "as if it was real" but there had been no threat to the public.
