Armed police have been at the scene of a property in Hairini for more than seven hours after gunshots were heard in the area overnight.
A police spokeswoman said officers responded to reports of gunshots on Haukore St about 12.24am.
There were no reported injuries, she said.
A scene guard was in place at the property and police were working to determine the circumstances around the incident.
A photographer at the scene said two armed police and two police cars could be seen out the front of the property.
He said Haukore St was open and traffic was going past, but the footpath on either side of the road was cordoned off.
More to come.
