Armed police officers arrested a woman after reports of a disturbance.
Officers were called to an address in Moseley Road, Annesley, shortly after 1.45am this morning (Saturday) after reports that a gun was being pointed at a property.
A BB gun was later recovered nearby and a 53-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
Detective Sergeant Matt Scott, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Incidents involving the reported use of firearms are always treated with utmost seriousness and will nearly always generate an immediate repose by armed officers.
“It doesn’t matter whether the gun is real or not – we have to assume that it is real and act accordingly. I am pleased this incident was brought to a swift and safe conclusion and would like to thank the officers involved for their swift and professional response.”
