Police have been looking for Daniel Kipa, 31, for some time before Monday night's incident where the weapon was presented, police say.

He had warrants for arrest on breaching prison release conditions, Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Newman says.

He was believed to be in east Auckland and armed police were in Glen Innes on Tuesday.

"We believe Kipa has a firearm and urge anyone who sees him, or knows his whereabouts, to not approach him but instead call 111 immediately," Det Snr Sgt Newman said.
