An alleged shooting involving an illegal AK-47 rifle ended peacefully after an hour long stand-off with the Armed Offenders Squad in Auckland on Monday afternoon, Stuff reports. Inspector Kerry Watson of Ōtāhuhu Station said, “When we’re talking about illegal firearms with high-calibre rounds, its quite potentially dangerous, and it’s safer for us and the community if we use our specialist staff.” Two people are in custody after the incident, which began in West Auckland and ended in Māngere East several hours later.
