Police are on the scene and have blocked of Lawrence Street and have a two story Queenslander house surrounded.

The Special Emergency Response Team have been called in along with police dogs and nine police cars.

Police are trying to negotiate with what is believed to be the gunman inside the house who has taken two or more hostages.

Reports suggest that one of those hostages may be a child as neighbours heard police speak on a loud speaker “Come out now and give the house back to Isaac and his mum and dad”.

Neighbours have also apparently said they have heard several loud bangs, but were unsure if they were gunshots or police throwing stun grenades into the house.
