NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 1/08/2016

A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after reports of a person being shot in the leg had led to two Christchurch schools being placed into lock-down.

The two schools, St Bernadette's and Hornby High, are near a Hei Hei address from where the man who was reported to have suffered a gunshot wound left on foot.

Police say the two schools are now open.

They said earlier on Monday that they believed the parties to the incident were known to each other.
