Shots have been fired at a home in Awapuni in Palmerston North but those inside have not been injured.

A police spokeswoman said the occupants of the Alexander St house were home at time of the shooting around 6.50am on Wednesday, but escaped uninjured.

It is unclear how many people fired shots at the house or whether they were in a vehicle.

Detectives have now cordoned off the home for an investigation.
