A Rotorua youth has been arrested following an armed offenders squad call-out this morning.
No one was injured during the Gordon Rd incident, at about 10.30am.
Acting Inspector Greg Sparrow said members of the public had reported seeing a man aiming a firearm at another person through the window of a car.
Mr Sparrow said it was a domestic matter and police were not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident.
He said the armed offenders squad had recovered a shotgun and a 17-year-old Rotorua man had been arrested and charged with presenting a firearm.
Further charges were likely.
