Hawke's Bay police are urging the public to help them locate a BMW station wagon thought to be involved in a shot fired at City Medical, Napier.
Police say the black 2000 BMW station wagon, registration FFJ500 is thought to have been involved in the firearms incident at a Napier medical centre recently.
The incident was sparked by teenage standoffs between gangs leaving a gang member struck by a car in Geddis Ave, sustaining minor leg injuries, a gang member arriving at the medical centre with a stab wound, and police being called to the centre where a shot had been fired, hitting a front wall between the main entrance and the Heart Foundation offices.
No one at the medical centre sustained any injuries as a result of the incident.
