Police say they’re continuing to investigate a report someone pointed a firearm at a member of the public in Christchurch.

The Herald understands police were contacted on Monday afternoon after reports someone pointed a gun at a member of the public on Pages Rd, Aranui.

A police spokeswoman confirmed staff were notified someone had “presented a firearm at another person”.

“Police have responded to the area and are searching for those responsible. Police have not yet located those involved and at this stage are unable to confirm the presence of a firearm.”

Police were working to determine the circumstances, and their response was “ongoing”, the spokeswoman said.
