The house was very quickly contained and a police firearms response was initiated. This is standard procedure to minimise the risk to the community.
No threats were made towards any members of the public in the area and no weapons were brandished.
Although the man police talked to had potential access to firearms, no weapons were in his possession at any point throughout the incident.
There were a small number of pupils in the nearby primary school and, as a safety precaution, and to minimise the distress caused by police activity, arrangements were made for the pupils to be collected from a rear entrance.
A 59-year-old man was arrested for affray and is currently in custody. Some lawfully-held firearms have been seized.
Police would like to thank local residents for their patience during the necessary road closures.
