Three people have been arrested after an armed police incident on a Dundee street.
Balaclava-clad officers with guns drawn stopped a car on the city’s Perth Road leading to the arrests.
The road was sealed off between Union Place and Hawkhill for around half an hour at about 6.30pm.
Firearms officers could be heard giving commands of “hands up” and “get on the floor” as they carried out their operation in front of stunned passers-by and restaurant goers.
Dozens of officers and numerous police vehicles could be seen on the street in after three men were led away by officers.
A statement from Police Scotland said that no bullets were fired in the operation.
It read: “About 6.30pm on Sunday, firearms officers from Police Scotland stopped a vehicle in Perth Road in relation to an ongoing inquiry. Three persons were arrested and inquiries are continuing.
“No persons were injured during the operation and no weapons were discharged.
“Police Scotland can confirm that as a result of this incident there is no threat to the wider community.”
