Police hunt man after robbery
Police are hunting for an armed offender after a shot was thought to be fired in a South Auckland store this morning.
A masked man entered the Dollar Dealers store at Southmall in Manurewa at about 9:40am.
Counties Manukau Police spokeswoman Kimberley Mathews says police are now trying to find out whether a gun was involved.
''The sound they [the shop workers] heard might have been the jewellery case being smashed. He definitely had something that he used to smash it but we're not sure if there was a gun or not.''
The offender fled the scene in a silver Toyota.
No one was injured and police are not yet sure what was taken from the store.
Workers and patrons at the nearby Aces Bar and United Video did not hear the gun fire or see anything suspicious.
Anyone with information is asked to call Counties Manukau Police on 261 1300 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
