Police are looking into three firearms incidents that happened in Auckland over the past two days.

On Saturday, police responded to reports of shots being fired at a home on Smedley Street, Manurewa, at around 3:45pm. A spokesperson said no one was injured and police are following positive lines of inquiry.

The other two are also being investigated by police. There were reports of shots fired at residential homes on Blampied Road, Ōtara, at around 8pm on Friday and Sandra Avenue, Ōtara, at around 7:30pm on Saturday.
