ARMED police swooped on a wood in Huddersfield after shots were heard and people were seen with guns.
The firearms officers responded after a man and two youths were seen at Round Wood, off Woodedge Avenue in Waterloo, at 4.30pm yesterday.
Sgt Tim O'Sullivan, of Huddersfield police, said: "The armed officers could hear firearms being discharged in the wood and arrested the three at gunpoint.
"They were taken to Huddersfield police station for questioning."
The three - a 20-year-old man and two boys aged 14 and 15 - all come from Waterloo.
The 20-year-old has been charged with illegally possessing a shotgun.
The 15-year-old has been bailed pending further inquiries.
No further action will be taken against the 14-year-old.
A shotgun, an air rifle and ammunition for both weapons were recovered by police.
Sgt Tim O'Sullivan, of Huddersfield police, said: "This must have been a frightening experience for witnesses who saw these people with weapons.
"Ultimately it must have been frightening for them to be arrested at gunpoint.
"Incidents like this are taken exceptionally seriously. They put both others and the people with the weapons at risk."
