Armed police cars were called to a Sheffield area this evening to track down and arrest a man who was reported to have a firearm.
Police were called to a domestic argument in Stannington at 6.06pm.
When officers arrived, they found the man had left the property and was thought to be in a car with a firearm.
Six police units, including armed police and a police dog unit, were called out to find the man.
The man was located on Holme Lane and arrested.
It had been thought that the man had been carrying a legally owned firearm with intent to do harm to himself.
But South Yorkshire Police confirmed to The Star that the man was not carrying a firearm when he was arrested.
He remains in police custody.
The police were not able to confirm how old the man is or what he was arrested on suspicion of.
A Sheffield resident got in touch with The Star and told us: "On Holme Lane in the last hour, 6 armed police cars pointing guns at somebody, we got stuck in the middle of it."
