A woman was arrested this evening as armed police responded to reports a gun was fired in Swanson, West Auckland.
A car was pulled over, and police arrested a woman in a Suzuki Swift this evening.
A local grocery store shopkeeper said there were many police in the area near the junction of Bahari Drive and Swanson Rd.
Police were told a firearm was discharged in the area.
“There are no reported injuries,” a spokeswoman said.
“Police, with the assistance of Eagle helicopter, are making inquiries in the area to determine further what has occurred.”
Shortly before 6pm, a cordon was put up on Swanson Rd about halfway between Swanson and Ranui.
A member of the public on social media said armed police were in the area and had told her not to enter part of Swanson Rd due to a shooting nearby.
A staff member at a nearby vape shop near Afton Place said police were parked up outside.
Police investigating the incident were also seen several blocks to the west, near the train station.
