Police officer shot in Napier

Postby normotheclown » Thu May 07, 2009 11:20 am

From Stuff:

LATEST One police officer is dead and at least one more injured after a shooting in Napier this morning.

The Armed Offenders Squad was called to Chaucer Rd South in Ahuriri, just north of central Napier.

It is understood that one officer was shot dead and one or two more injured, and that the alleged shooter is still on the loose.

It was near a gang headquarters in Ahuriri, one witness said.

At least one person has been taken from the scene in an ambulance. It is unclear whether the injured was a police officer or a member of the public.

A large part of Napier Hill and surrounding areas have been cordoned off by police, bringing parts of the city to a standstill.

EYE-WITNESS REPORTS

Chaucer Rd resident Donald Taylor said he was told by armed police to go inside about 9.45am.

From his window he saw two armed police standing over a man lying on the ground. They lead the limping man to a police car.

"While they were putting him in the car ... I heard two more shots. They are now all sprinting around Botanical Gardens."


Johnny Ruhi was on a roof in Chaucer Rd painting when he heard six ''bloody loud bangs'' about 9.30am.

''I just jumped over the other side of the roof and hid. It was bloody scary because we didn't know what the hell was happening.

''I was just laying down trying to figure out what the hell was happening. When I realised I just jumped off the roof.

''Normally this street is really noisy but at the moment you could hear a pin drop.''

About 10 minutes after the shots he saw Armed Offenders Squad members holding someone on the ground and then putting them into an ambulance.

About 10.30am a police helicopter was circling the botanic gardens and cemetery and ''heaps'' of police dog handlers were arriving.

''There is about a dozen police cars and a heap of ambulances.''

Chaucer Rd resident William Johnson said he heard three series of shots between about 9.30am and 10am.

Three or four shots were fired before a pause, then another three or four shots, another pause, then five or six shots.

The shots had come from further up the steep road, known as Breakneck Hill, where the area was quite bushy.

Mr Johnson said he had gone out to help direct police to the street and been told to go inside. About six armed officers ran past shortly afterwards.

"We've been told to lie low, stay away from the windows. We're in lockdown ... It's a bit scary."

A witness who lives on the northern side of Napier Hill told NZPA it "sounded like World War 3".

Royal Tavern duty manager Dianne Durham said the drama unfolded before 9.30am, when armed police arrived in large numbers and she heard what sounded like gunshots coming from the Botanical Gardens.

Police told her not to leave the pub.

Police have also visited schools in the area have been told teachers and children to stay inside.

Chaucer Rd resident Caroline Weetink said she heard several shots coming from near the Botanical Gardens.

"It was just a series of shots ... [They] sounded pretty close."

Police had since swarmed the area, telling her to stay inside her house when she went to the bottom of her driveway.

"We saw an armed police officer running through the cemetery," she said.

INCIDENT ON MAYOR'S HOME STREET

Radio New Zealand reported that Napier Mayor Barbara Arnott said the district police commander left a council meeting when he was told about the incident.

Ms Arnott told Radio New Zealand she understood two police officers and one civilian had been involved and two of them had been taken to hospital.

Ms Arnott lived on the street where the incident occurred.

"I understand the incident is still occurring... I think there is a house involved.

"The area is contained and the public just needs to stay away and let the emergency services do their jobs".

A rescue helicopter is being brought in to take the injured to hospital. Residents were being urged to stay indoors.

St John Ambulance officers were attending the incident.



right, so who lives in Napier .....

Dosent appear to be an Outlaw who did it.

Police expect the stand-off with a Napier gunman who has killed one police officer and wounded two others is likely to go through the night.

The dead policeman has been named as Senior Constable Len Snee and his body is still inside the Chaucer Road address.

Constable Bruce Miller from Ahurihi and Grant Diver a dog handler have both been injured – they were transported to Hawkes Bay Hospital.

They were carrying out a standard search warrant at the address before they were attacked.

The gunman is known to police and is 51-years-old, he is not said to have gang connections and police have refused to say whether he has any links to illegal drugs.

Gisborne Armed Offenders Squad have surrounded the house – the gunman is the only person there.

Earlier reports that he had taken a hostage have not been confirmed, although one civilian was caught in cross-fire and is still being operated on at a nearby hospital.

Local schools have been told to exercise caution and one in particular has been evacuated.

Pupils from Napier Central Primary School, only 500m from the scene, have been moved to the Cootes Road Army Hall.

Yup that's right. or the natural reaction of an unarmed man confronting someone with a high powered semi automatic rifle who's just shot your mate and you're next.

i bet the gunman was just completely crazy and probably evil, the nice cops probably just wanted to help him.

Was the guy/they waiting for the cops? Seems weird for 2 cops (assuming with sniper support) going down without any damage to the shooters.

Has all the hallmarks of a meth induced shootout, if you ask me - and you did not.

Stink buzz as - shooting cops is a fucking stupid idea and this incident only gives National ammo to bring in laws to arm the police 24/7 and reinforces the notion that criminals should be shot first and asked questions later. Unless it comes out that the guy shot the cops for hooning on his 8 year old daughter or something, anyone who thinks this is a great thing has all the intellect of a glue sniffing 14 year old.
