Police are investigating after a drive-by shooting in a South Auckland suburb overnight. 

Authorities were called to a property on Phoenix Place, Papatoetoe about 11.30pm after reports of a serious incident. 

At least one window could be seen riddled with bullet holes.

At the scene in the early hours of this morning, armed police stood guard and a police cordon around the house was in place. 

It is not yet known whether those responsible have been caught. Police have been approached for more information.
