Two people have been arrested and charged after a south Auckland home was shot at in the early hours of the morning last week.

Police were called to Frobisher Way, Manurewa around 1.15am on Saturday after a report of a shot discharged towards a residential address.

A bullet and casing was found during a scene examination, along with damage to the house, a spokesperson said.

“A number of inquiries have been carried out in relation to the incident and, this morning, a 22-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man were arrested.”

An investigation determined the shooting was an “isolated incident” involving parties known to each other, police said.

“It is not believed to be connected to other recent firearms incidents in Counties Manukau.

“Police have no tolerance for gun violence and will continue to hold those responsible to account.”

The pair have been charged with wilful damage and intentional damage causing danger to life. They were both due to appear in Manukau District Court on June 24.
