Specialists negotiating with armed man holding hostages in Brisbane

A major siege in Brisbane’s south is still underway this morning and has been going for almost 24 hours.

Specialist officers are negotiating with an armed man in Sunnybank, with a woman and a child believed to be inside the property.

An exclusion zone has been set up since 11.00 am yesterday, with other members of the public urged to avoid the area.


It’s currently blocking off the area between Dyson Ave, Gedde Place, Beenleigh Rd and Ganda Place.

Media and witnesses at the scene have reported hearing gunshots at the home this morning, but this is yet to be confirmed by police.

A Queensland Police spokesperson says that not much more information can be provided while the incident is ongoing.

Paramedics and specialist teams remain on standby.
