Counties Manukau Police District Commander Superintendent Jill Rogers said the police received multiple reports of a man with a machete in Papatoetoe, Auckland.
“Police received 13 separate calls from worried and scared residents regarding the man’s behaviour,” she said.
“He was reportedly using the machete to smash windows, damage cars and cut powerlines.”
“A police officer arrived in the area shortly after and began to engage with him.
“Despite repeated requests from our officer to the man to put down his weapon, he continued to advance on the officer and has been shot.
“The man was provided immediate medical assistance, however the man died at the scene,” Superintendent Rogers said.
Police are carrying out a scene examination and speaking with a number of witnesses.
