Man threatened to shoot police in Murgon seige

A SIEGE last night in Murgon ended when a 41-year-old man was taken into police custody.

Murgon Police Sergeant Ken Slater said Watt St was cordoned off after the situation escalated.

"We had a gentlemen there who produced a knife," Sgt Slater said.

"He later produced what was believed to be a fire arm.

"He stated that he wanted to shoot police."

Sgt Slater said a police negotiator was brought in from Tiaro to handle the situation.

"Negotiations began. After a period of time the police obtained entry in to the home."

The Murgon resident will face three charges of serious assault at Kingaroy Magistrates Court on Monday.
