NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 20/11/2016

Police cordons have now been removed from Cook Street in Foxton after gunshots were heard on Saturday night.

The cordons were put in place in the Horowhenua town at about 7.30pm so police could carry out investigations.

Investigators will stay in Foxton to complete their enquiries.

Armed police and a dog unit attended the incident on Saturday night, but do not believe anyone was hurt.

Detective Sergeant Dave Wishnowsky says he believes it may be gang related.

Police are also investigating whether the gunshots heard in Foxton are linked to a car that was stopped in Levin about 4.30am on Sunday morning.

One of the three men in the car was taken to Palmerston North hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg.

The other two men will appear in Levin District Court on Monday charged with methamphetamine possession.
