NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 2/02/2017

Wellington police haven't been able to find any evidence of a gunman in the suburb of Mount Victoria after reports of one forced a nearby school to be locked down.

The reports of the gunman came in just after 12.30pm on Thursday.

However, just before 3pm police said they had searched the area and found no one of interest.

Cordons were lifted and officers stood down.

Wellington East Girls' College says normal activities have resumed and end of school day arrangements were unaffected.

The school has a roll of around 1000.
