A man who was shot in the leg in Pukekohe has been taken to hospital - while a school that was put into lockdown is back open.
Just after 12.40pm on Friday, police rushed to a Hogan Street address where a man in his 50's had a gunshot wound to his leg, police say.
Police were searching for the offender after he fled on foot following the shooting. A male is now in custody and is assisting police.
It's believed the man with the gunshot wound has non-life threatening injuries.
The school was closed after the shooting as a precaution but police say there is no longer a threat to public safety.
