A car apparently shot at in the Lower Hutt suburb of Naenae this afternoon turned out to most likely be a false alarm.

The car was driving along Chapman Cres about 12.30pm when the driver heard the sound of a gun,  Inspector Marty Parker said.

It was later discovered the car had what appeared to be a bullet hole in it.

Some children, who police thought may have been playing with a gun, were talked to by police but it now appeared it was unlikely a gun was involved.
