A man shot in the leg at an Auckland house last night is in a stable condition after undergoing surgery. 

The 51-year-old suffered serious injuries in the shooting, in Hayr Rd, Three Kings, about 10pm.

An Auckland City Hospital spokesman said the man was in a stable condition and was recovering in a ward.

This morning, a police spokeswoman said a silver 1996 BMW sedan, registration BZL461, was stolen from the house shortly after the shooting. It is unclear whether it was the victim's car.

Police said it was possible the two men responsible for the shooting were travelling in the stolen car after the incident.

Police have spoken to another person who was at the house at the time, and a scene examination is under way.

A Mt Albert Rd resident said he was woken around 11.30pm by a woman banging on his door.

"I was in bed at the time, and a lady started screeching, and a car was screeching so I thought it was something on the road," he said.

"Then the scream of the girl started getting louder and then she approached my house and I called police. She kept asking for help, help, help."

He said he did not know any of the people involved in the shooting and had never seen the woman before.

Anyone with information was encouraged to call 111 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Police advised members of the public not to approach the offenders as they were dangerous and likely to be armed.
