Police denies shots were fired as siege passes 24-hour mark

Police have quelled fears several “loud bangs” that rang out across a Brisbane southside suburb on Friday were gunshots coming from the scene of an ongoing siege.

A man remains holed up inside a Sunnybank home with other people, in a standoff that has passed the 24-hour mark, but reports of gunshots were incorrect, according to police, and the series of loud noises heard in the area was not related to the ongoing situation.

Negotiations continue and specialist heavily armed officers remained at the scene on Friday, with the exclusion zone still in place too, after residents inside the cordon were evacuated on Thursday.

Police remain tight-lipped about the details of the incident and what led to the standoff, which started about 10.30am on Thursday when officers visited the Dyson Street address.
