Armed Offenders Squad members have been stood down after a man was found dead in an Upper Hutt house.

Twenty-five police officers - 10 local officers and 15 Armed Offenders Squad members - were called to Whitemans Valley Rd in Upper Hutt about 9am today.

Acting Area Commander Shane Cotter said a person had been found dead at an address nearby.

Police did not fire any shots.

Police were not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident at this stage, Cotter said.
