Police remain in a stand-off in West Sussex with a 72-year old man who is believed to have a gun.
Officers were called to a house in Harbour Road, Pagham at around 4.10pm on Sunday to a report of threatening behaviour.
A woman known to the man was also in the house, but she left shortly after police arrival and is safe and well.
The 72-year-old man remains in the property alone.
A police cordon is still in place and the road remains closed.
"The safety of the local community is our utmost priority.
"Local residents in Harbour Road have been advised to stay inside, but should they wish to or need to leave their properties, we will be able to facilitate this with police support.
"Communication continues with the lone man in the house and we hope to resolve this situation as quickly and safely as possible.”
Trained negotiators are in contact with the suspect.
There are no reports of any injuries.
