A man is in hospital after being stabbed in the chest in Auckland this morning.

Ambulance communications shift manager Teneale Lawrence said police and ambulance were called to the scene on Commodore Drive in Lynfield shortly before 1.30 this morning.

The man was transported to Auckland City Hospital in a "life-threatening" condition, Lawrence said.

Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty said the man was in hospital but his injuries were no longer thought to be life-threatening.

He was said to be recovering after surgery.

The knife used in the stabbing was found with the victim, Hegarty said.

A scene examination at the address has been completed.

Police were investigating the stabbing and while no one was in custody in relation to the attack, investigators were "following up on some leads", she said.

It was unclear what the relationship was between the people involved as police had not had a chance to properly interview the victim yet, Hegarty said.

Hegarty said there were unconfirmed reports of two other men being involved.

The victim was 45 years old, she said.
