At least one person has been seriously injured and roads cordoned off after an incident in Panmure, Auckland.
Up to 25 police officers in masks flooded the scene tonight
Emergency services were called to the scene on Tripoli Rd in Panmure at 7.30pm.
Red and white tape has been used to cordon off part of the road and a nearby apartment.
Police officers are patrolling the area outside and inside the apartment block, with a police spokesperson saying they are working to determine the circumstances.
“We’ll update more when we have more to confirm,” the spokeswoman said.
An eyewitness who spoke to the Herald at 8pm said the victim was under a tree with police and ambulance crews gathered around them.
There were about 16 flashing police cars, 25 police officers and one ambulance at the scene, he said.
It comes after a man in his 70s was shot dead in Ōtahuhu last night.
A homicide investigation was under way and a post-mortem would be arrived at tomorrow, a police spokesperson said.
More to come.
