A street in Levin was closed this afternoon as the armed offenders squad(AOS) investigated an alleged gun threat.

Police central communications acting shift commander Mark Oliver said police were alerted to the incident in Tiro Tiro Rd.

Someone had called police alleging a gun had been pointed at them in the street.

"Around 1.30pm was the first we heard of the allegation of a firearm being presented at somebody. It was someone who alleged someone at the address had pointed a gun at them."

The road was blocked off and the armed offenders squad moved in, Mr Oliver said. The occupants of the house were taken to the police station.

"The AOS have cleared the address. They have removed a couple of people from the address. They've been taken to the station for further interviewing."

Eleven police cars responded to the incident.
