A 30-year-old man was shot early this morning just south of Blenheim.

A St John Ambulance spokesman said they were called to Redwood Pass Rd at 4.40am by the victim, who had been shot in the thigh.

The man was treated at the scene before being transferred to Wairau Hospital, in Blenheim, for surgery.

Detective Sergeant Jason Hillgrove, of Blenheim police, said St John notified police of the shooting about 5am.
