Workers who'd come face to face with the gunman who's killed two people and injured five at a downtown Auckland construction site say they had a narrow escape.

There was chaos in the CBD area around Commercial Bay, when gunshots were heard around 7.20 am, after a man had entered the building at number 1 Queen Street and started shooting.

Our reporter Lucy Xia was at the scene.
