Ōtara locals angry about safety after shooting

Anger bubbled over at a community meeting in Ōtara on Saturday, when politicians weren't addressing the safety concerns of residents. A nearby school and a kindergarten went into lockdown on Friday after a man was shot dead on Piako Street, just under a month after another fatal shooting less than three kilometres away. Instead of addressing the shootings, Auckland Mayor Phil Goff and MP Jenny Salesa were explaining what it was they loved about Ōtara, and residents weren't impressed. RNZ reporter Brooke Jenner was at the hui.
