A six-year-old boy from Auckland has been killed in a shooting incident in Fiji.

A 14-year-old local boy was also wounded in the incident and is in a critical condition.

Fijilive said the incident happened at 6pm yesterday in the Lautoka suburb of Sabeto Hill.

It said the dead boy’s family was in Lautoka to help build a house.
