WATCH: Armed Police respond to "medical matter"

Videos of armed Police Officers ordering someone to put a gun down in St. Helier have been circulating on social media.

Responding to questions from Express, they have confirmed that it was a genuine incident, rather than a training exercise, and related to a "medical matter."

At least two armed officers can be seen and heard shouting, "Put your gun down."

LISTEN to the audio track of one of the videos of the incident, filmed by a local resident. 

Police said the incident began at 06:11 and that "all was resolved safely" by 09:20.

They declined to comment further, and Express has chosen to blur out the pictures in the video in order to conceal the exact location.
