Footage taken by 1 NEWS shows damage to the Hairini property - and a car parked in the driveway - from a shooting which police say occurred just after midnight today.

Another incident this afternoon saw a shooting reported at a property on No.2 Road, Te Puke. Members of the Armed Offenders Squad have set up a cordon in the area.

A small group gathered at the cordon say the property, where the police have gathered, was recently tenanted by gang members.

A man with the group said his daughter heard a number of gun shots coming from the address early this afternoon.

The Police Eagle helicopter has been seen flying in the area, and dozens of officers are at the scene.

Another man who didn’t want to be named says he’s complained to police a number of times about the behaviour from the group.

But he says police were slow to act every time he complained. He says he wasn’t the only one to call police about the group.

He says it was only a matter of time before someone’s killed.

Police say no one was injured in these two incidents today, that come after a property was damaged on Friday night in Greerton, before the same property was gutted by fire yesterday.
