Update on cordons – Whangarei


Police can now confirm that the cordons on Mt Tiger Road outside of Whangarei have now been lifted.

The road is open to the public. A welfare centre that was setup at Whareora Hall to support displaced residents will now close.

The scene of today’s shooting incident is cordoned off and will be for a number of days while scene examinations are conducted. 

There will be no further update this evening unless there is a significant development. The next update will be mid-morning tomorrow.
