Two people are in hospital after a shooting in South Auckland.

Police say two people received gunshot wounds in an incident in Oratu Place, in Manurewa, about 4:30am on Sunday.

Both injured people have been taken to hospital.

Officers were working to understand what had happened.

A warning was also issued on Sunday morning for a report of an active shooter on the city campus of the University of Auckland, however police confirmed soon after that it was an organised bird culling exercise and there was no danger.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
