Auckland gang wars: Two more houses shot up overnight

Police have been kept busy overnight with reports of at least two more shooting incidents on opposite sides of Auckland.

Police said in a statement they're investigating after reports of gunshots in the eastern suburb of Mellons Bay on Bleakhouse Road.

Counties Manukau detective inspector Warrick Adkin said a house was shot up just before 9pm. No injuries had currently been reported. 

Footage from the scene shows what appears to be bullet holes in the front windows of a house.

Newshub understands the shooting was part of the ongoing gang war between the Killer Beez and Tribesmen.

It comes after seven shootings overnight in Auckland, which were believed to involve the gangs Killer Beez and Tribesmen.

But concerningly, Counties Manukau district commander Jill Rogers said that at least two of the properties hit in the shootings have no ties to any gangs, which she said "heightens the concern we have about this behaviour".

Rogers said high-powered rifles were used in the shootings. 

"I do believe that a number of these weapons that have been used are high powered rifles and that causes immense concern to us," she said. 

The shootings on Tuesday took place in Ōtara, Papatoetoe, Flat Bush, Papakura, Henderson, Mt Albert, and Te Atatū.
