A manhunt is underway for an armed and "very dangerous" 30-year-old man in Western Australia.
Malcolm Stirling Blurton is being sought as part of a police investigation into drug dealing and other crimes.
Acting Police Commissioner Paul Steel said the incidents involved weapons but, "were restricted to a small group of people" and the general public was not in danger.
However, he said Blurton was believed to be in possession of a firearm, was dangerous and may act unpredictably.
Police have warned the public not to approach him but to call police immediately.
Blurton is described as dark skinned, of medium build and about 175cm tall with short hair and a possible rat's tail.
He was last seen in the Armadale and Gosnells area in Perth's south driving a silver hatchback or SUV.
