Northland shooting: Incident would've been terrifying due to remote location - local

From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 28 October 2020

A Northland woman says the remote location where a police officer was shot at would have made the ordeal even more terrifying.

The police say early on Tuesday morning two men with guns approached a female officer's car and fired a shot into her windscreen, south of Kerikeri.

A kidnapping and car being set alight in the area could be linked.

A local woman has lived on Puketotara Road near Kerikeri for 16 years told Jean Bell the area is mostly farm land.
