Taupo Shooting

Taupo Police have been advised that a 12 yr old boy was flown by Helicopter to Rotorua Hospital at about 1.00am this morning.

It has been reported that the boy has received an injury to his head believed to have resulted from an air rifle being discharged. The exact details as to who is responsible or the details around the incident are still unclear.

Rotorua Police were contacted and have been speaking with the Boys family at the Hospital. Police in both centres are coordinating this inquiry but Taupo Police will oversee the investigation.

It has been reported to Police that the injuries are NOT life threatening but the seriousness aside from this report is unknown, and is still being ascertained.

A further press release will be made by 5.30 pm today from my office when more details can be confirmed.

Until that time no further comment will be made.
