A man is in custody after a stand-off with police at East Gosford overnight.
Police attended a unit block on Melbourne Street at about 11pm (Thursday 20 February 2020), in relation to a domestic-related assault.
It is believed a 47-year-old woman had been assaulted in the unit by a man known to her, after he allegedly discharged a firearm inside.
The woman was able to leave the unit and contact police.
After refusing to leave, police formed a perimeter around the unit block and further specialist resources attended.
Following negotiations, a 51-year-old man was taken into custody about 2:30am (Friday 21 February 2020).
A handgun was taken from the unit and is being forensically examined.
He remains at Gosford Police Station where inquiries are continuing.
