Armed police cordoned off Christchurch streets on reports of a firearm shot today.
An area in Opawa was cordoned off and the Christchurch Police Armed Offender Squad were called to "clear an address", police said.
The call-out followed a report of a possible gunshot heard by a member of the public around 4.15pm this afternoon.
Police said: "The address was cleared without incident. No firearm was located. Persons from the address are assisting police with their enquiries."
