Police investigated reports of shot being fired in Mount Maunganui this morning.
A police spokespersons says a caller reported hearing what they thought were gunshots in the Ranch Road area at 6.40am.
“Police checked the area but didn't locate anything of concern.
“We received no other calls regarding this, which suggests it was most likely not actually shots fired.”
People who see suspicious activity in their area can contact police on 111 if it is an emergency or 105 for non-emergency information.
