A man has been bitten by a police dog and tasered following a nine hour siege at Rosebud.

The 30-year-old, who detectives say is an associate of a 31-year-old man who was shot nearby on Sunday (pictured top left), barricaded himself inside an Ocean Street home at 10pm on Monday night.

The man was living in a tent at the back of the address with a female who was released at 3:40am on Tuesday, after which officers from the Special Operations Group were called in to continue negotiations.

He was finally arrested at about 6:30am on Tuesday.

Detective Inspector Mick Hughes says the suspect is currently in hospital being treated for a severe bite wound to his leg with questioning to get underway soon.

"We actually believe he may have been at the house on Sunday," he said. "We haven't had the opportunity to speak with this gentleman yet."

A 31-year-old man who was known to police died in hospital on Monday after being shot shortly after leaving a Father's Day lunch with his parents in the seaside town.
