Armed incident in Levin resolved

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 16/06/2016 NZ Newswire

An armed incident that forced the lock down of a Levin primary school has "been resolved", police say.

Taitoko School is near the incident around Liverpool and Balmoral Streets and police on Thursday afternoon asked the students to remain on the school grounds.

The public was also asked to stay away from the area, where the armed offenders squad had been deployed.

Police have now confirmed the matter has been resolved without incident, and contrary to suggestions on social media, no one was taken hostage during the event.

Cordons have been lifted and police say they are talking to a number of people as they continue their investigation.
