Five seriously hurt in Whangarei shooting

Five people have been seriously injured after a group shot at each other in a Whangarei carpark last night.

All five people were taken to Whangarei Hospital with firearms-related injuries.

An employee at a Mobil Petrol station that backs on to Clark Rd in the suburb of Kamo said his colleagues saw people shooting at each other from cars yesterday evening.

He said the group were on an empty section behind the Kamo Rd shops where the petrol station is.

A Clark Rd resident, who did not wish to be named, said he believed the shooting started near the Kamo Vets on the corner of Carlton Cres and Kamo Rd.

He said the Kamo Rd end of Clark Rd was blocked off by police this morning.

Methamphetamine fuels ‘massive spike’ in burglaries in Nelson region

 

The Nelson region has experienced the largest spike in burglaries in the country, increasing by 52 per cent in a year.

Nationally, reported crime increased by 4 per cent last year and burglaries by 16 per cent.

Nelson Bays police area commander Inspector Mat Arnold-Kelly said the “massive spike” in burglaries was fuelled by methamphetamine and youths who offended “for the thrill of it”.
