Police are responding to an aggravated robbery at a dairy in Auckland where the shopkeeper has been seriously wounded.
The incident, at the intersection of Haverstock Rd and Fowlds Ave in Sandringham, was reported to police at 8.05pm.
A person “working at the dairy” has been seriously injured and has been transported to hospital, police said.
More than a dozen police officers remained at the scene shortly after 9.30pm, while a specialist police photographer is also conducting a scene examination.
It is understood the shop is the Rose Cottage Superette.
A neighbour of the shop told a photographer at the scene they come to the dairy often.
“A lovely young family owns it, they only left a few days ago for a vacation. Sadly it seems someone has taken advantage.”
Other neighbours were in shock, some seen shaking their heads.
