A South Auckland councillor is calling for more youth workers in the area after a series of shootings during the weekend. There were six gang-related incidents in Otara on Friday and Saturday - five of which involved gunshots. No one was injured, but police officers were temporarily armed until this morning as they waited for the dust to settle. Reporter Jean Bell and visual journalist, Simon Rogers, went out to Otara today and filed this report.
