Wellington police are interviewing a man who has undergone surgery to remove bullet fragments from his leg following a shooting overnight.

Officer in charge of the Wellington District Crime Squad, Warwick McKee, said police were alerted to last night's incident, which took place in Island Bay, by Wellington Hospital staff when the shooting victim turned up for treatment at midday today.

The man had not alerted police to the shooting. He has undergone surgery today and police have been able to begin interviews with him about the incident, McKee said.
