Detective Inspector Chris Barry of Counties Manukau Police said police and ambulance were called to a disorder event at Fort Richard Road, Otahuhu, just before 1.30pm.

On arrival police located two injured males in a vehicle, who were both transported to Auckland Hospital by ambulance. Both were in serious condition but they have since been updated to stable, according to St John.

One of the men is undergoing surgery, Barry said. 

"Two further males presented themselves at Middlemore Hospital which police believe eventuated from the same incident," he said.

In a further update police say the two males are now in a stable condition. 

Barry said no arrests have been made as yet "however a large number of police are in the Fort Richard Road and Sturges Park area speaking to people".

A number of Rebels motorcycle gang members were among those seen talking to police at Sturges Park.

Despite the presence of the Rebels gang members, Barry said there was "nothing to suggest this is connected to recent gang tensions in the area".

"Police would like to reassure the community that this appears to be an isolated incident," he said. 

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information which may assist, is asked to contact Police by calling 105 and quoting event number P047459560.
