A person with a BB gun put multiple New Zealand’s West Auckland schools in lockdown this afternoon.
Police were alerted to an incident in Avondale at around 1.40pm after it was believed that a person in the area had a firearm.
Surrounding schools were put into lockdown as a precautionary measure.
Police says they have since established that a person had a BB gun and they are now assisting with the enquiries.
The schools are no longer in lockdown.
