Two people were injured at the scene of a shooting in Māngere Bridge this morning, police say.

Police have cordoned off an area at the corner of Coronation Rd and Waterfront Rd.

They were called there at 5.40am today after a person was shot.

That person was taken to Auckland Hospital with a gunshot wound and was still in a "critical but stable" condition just before 9pm, a hospital spokeswoman said.


A second man, who was located nearby, was found to have suffered facial injuries.

"Police can now confirm he was injured during the same incident," the spokeswoman said.

The incident took place near the Māngere Bridge boat ramp which has become a popular spot for late-night parties.

One resident said she phoned police at 4am to complain about the noise, only to be told to ring Auckland Council. Less than two hours later the shooting took place.

Residents have complained about regular all-night "rowdy" parties at the Māngere Bridge causeway and have called a public meeting to be held at the local school at 7.30pm tomorrow.

Local MPs, Auckland Council, police and the NZ Transport Agency have all been asked to attend.
