Two people have been arrested after a woman was shot in Masterton last night.

The woman is in Wellington Hospital with serious leg wounds.

Police have recovered a firearm but they want to speak to people who witnessed the incident, on Dixon Street, near Norris Way just after 9pm.

They believe the offenders and the victim were known to each other.

A 30-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman have been arrested and will appear in the Masterton District Court today.
