    A manhunt' s underway - and Auckland police have been left shaken - after officers were shot at last night

    A manhunt' s underway - and Auckland police have been left shaken - after officers were shot at last night


    It's the first time officers have faced gunfire since the shooting to death of Constable Matthew Hunt in June.

    A police unit signalled a vehicle to stop on Weymouth Road in Manurewa shortly before midnight.

    The car took off and the officers gave chase - but gave up when the driver shot at their moving vehicle.

    The two offenders are still on the run after dumping their car on Totara Road.

    No officers were injured.
