BREAKING NEWS 11.45am
A man who took a machete into a South Auckland gun shop today is in hospital, after he was shot in the stomach.
The man was thought to have been shot by someone in the shop about 10am.
Police said they were not told about the incident until after the shooting.
Police spokeswoman, Noreen Hegarty said details of the shooting were still vague and she could not say what "the precursor to him being shot was.
“It would be reasonable to question why he went into the shop with a machete.”
It was not known if the man threatened staff in the shop, in Great South Road, in the suburb of Penrose.
“He was shot whilst in the shop and then police were advised of the incident,” she said.
It was not known what type of weapon was used.
The shot man was conscious when he arrived at hospital, said police.
The shooting was at Small Arms International, considered to be one of the leading gun shops in the country.
It was at the same address as a company which specialises in firearms auctions and antique gun sales.[/quote]
