Auckland is rocked by a new police incident as New Zealand police storm a city landmark
- Two men climbed onto the roof of the Ferry Building on Friday
A day after the city was rocked by a mass shooting that killed three people, including the gunman, police officers have rushed to a second incident in downtown Auckland.
Police cordoned off the city’s ferry building around 12:15 p.m. local time on Friday after two men climbed the landmark tower.
A New Zealand Police spokesman said there was no immediate danger to the public but the area had been cordoned off as a precaution.
“Police negotiators are on site and making contact with the people involved,” the police said.
A worker at the tower said the two men broke in on Thursday when the shooting happened and stayed there overnight. Things reported.
Several police cars and a fire engine are on site.
Terrifying photos show two men in black hoodies standing at the top of the tower.
Ferry and bus services were affected.
