Waikanae Dispute Tragedy

Police shoot fleeing man after Waikanae domestic row

A man has died after being shot when he approached a police car with a large knife following a domestic dispute  in Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast.

About 11.00pm last night, (25 February) Police were called to a domestic incident in Waikanae.

But before they arrived, the man has left the address in a vehicle.

Police began searching for the man before his vehicle was sighted around the Mana Esplanade area.

At around 12.30am, the man approached a police car with the large knife and threatened a police officer before being shot.

Immediate first aid was given to the man before ambulance staff arrived.

But the man has since died as a result.

Police staff cordoned off the immediate area around the scene and will be conducting a full scene examination this morning.

Police are also speaking with the man’s family and are providing support.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just
sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to
everything. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog
writers? I’d really appreciate it.
