The man and woman were both arrested in the operation conducted by Taranaki Police and the Armed Offenders Squad yesterday morning.

A white van believed to be used in the shooting was recovered, along with three rifles, a cut-down shotgun and ammunition.

Matuku said police believed the public were not at risk as the two parties involved in the shootings were known to each other.

Anyone who has information which might lead to the arrest of 43-year-old Sole is asked to please contact police.
