Machete-wielding man shot at gun shop
By Elizabeth Binning
A man wielding a machete has been shot at a gun shop in Auckland this morning.
The shooting happened at SAI Guns and Ammo in Penrose at about 10am.
The 19-year-old man entered the shop at 553 Great South Road, on the corner with Walls Road, carrying a machete.
He was shot in the stomach by one of the people inside using a handgun.
The Ambulance Service said the 19-year-old had serious injuries. He was taken to Auckland City Hospital where he was conscious on arrival and was undergoing surgery this morning.
Scene-setting information: guns are rare in New Zealand, and hand guns moreso. There are maybe 4 gun shops across the wider Auckland area, home to 1 million plus people.
