Armed police in standoff with 'man with handgun' as area cordoned off

A street was cordoned off amid an armed police standoff with a 'man with a handgun' in Leeds. The major operation took place in the Half Mile Green area of Stanningley on Sunday (June 9) as dozens of armed police officers flooded the street.

Police were called to a 'domestic-related' incident at a property shortly after midday. However, officers later 'withdrew' after seeing a man in possession of 'what appeared to be a handgun'.

Pictures from the scene showed ambulances, an incident response unit and multiple police vehicles in attendance. A large cordon was put in place amid the incident. A drone was also deployed over the area.

"At 12.36pm today, officers were called to a domestic-related incident at the property but withdrew on seeing a male at the address in possession of what appeared to be a handgun.

"A cordon is currently in place and various emergency service resources, including police negotiators, are at the scene working to bring the incident to a safe conclusion.

"The male is the only person in the address and there is no risk to the wider community."
