The Herald is reporting police firearm discharge in Kawerau. The video shows police in pursuit of a vehicle. The vehicle comes to a stop and an armed man exits the pursued vehicle.

A member of the public has left a car on the side of the road while at the dairy. The offender crosses the road, finds the vehicle doors open and enters the vehicle. The Herald reports that police fired at this vehicle The video appears to shows impacts to the rear window at 0:37 as the offender is entering the vehicle for the first time.

There is a question I would like the IPCA to address: How on earth could/did an armed officer know the vehicle was empty? To my mind there could have been kids in the back seat.

Fair point. I have family that live in both Kawerau and Te Teko, and everyone was told to stay inside and off the streets when this was happening. I imagine the majority of police vehicles came over from Whakataane, but whether or not they warned people in Te Teko prior to old mate driving through the town, I don't know. My guess is that it was a rushed calculated guess, seeing that no one jumped out when he jumped in.

The IPCA will probably take 2 years to "investigate" it. It's a failed/failing agency.
