What a morning, had just finished a lovely stroll with my do Silver, when a friend rung, and told me to stay inside a lock the doors as there was a gunman on the loose, in Ahuriri which is of course where we live! SHIT...freaking out thinking next moment a gunman was going to come flying through my doors! I phoned my little kids daycare, they were already in lock down. Phoned two friends who lives right on the St where it is all happening, and cannot get hold of them, hoping they are off at work! I can still hear the helicpoers flying over !
At 12.00 got a call from J and K's daycare to come and pick up the kids, they just wanted everyone out! Go them and saw police blocks on a street two blocks up! Now have them both a home, like nothing has happened. My big boy is still in lockdown at school!
My neigbour said our local Ahuriri policeman has been shot...not sure what is true at the moment, will keep you posted!
