Residents in a small town in southeast Queensland have been urged to stay indoors or have been evacuated from the area after shots were fired.
Police were called to reports of a shooting in Tara at around 3.30pm on Wednesday and declared an exclusion zone covering several blocks in the centre of town at about 5.30pm.
Police said in a statement that no one had been physically injured.
Tara is about 40km from the town of Wieambilla, the scene of a deadly ambush that ended with the deaths of six people in December 2022.
Queensland Police Constables Matthew Arnold, 26 and Rachel McCrow, 29, were shot dead after pulling up to a rural property for a welfare check.
Neighbour Alan Dare was also gunned down in a confrontation sparked when conspiracy theorists Gareth Train, his partner Stacey Train and brother Nathaniel Train opened fire upon their approach.
The trio were later shot dead by police.
