Armed police break up fight at Horowhenua campground

10:34 am on 31 December 2015

A man has been arrested after gunshots were heard at a Horowhenua campground last night.

Police said they received reports of a fight between campers at Waikawa, south of Levin, which led to a man threatening others with what was thought to be a knife.

A man has been charged with firearms and driving offences, and is due to appear in the Levin District Court this morning.

One person suffered eye lacerations in the incident.

A woman who lived nearby told RNZ News she could not remember there ever being any trouble at the campground, and the incident had frightened her.
