More than 150 people have marched through Kaikohe this morning to take a stand against gang violence.

The Mid North town has been drawn into ructions that began in Auckland between rival gangs the Tribesmen and Killer Beez, with shots fired at a house in Kaikohe before dawn on Tuesday.

Today's hikoi is fronted by leaders of the hapū of Ngāti Ueoneone, Ngāti Whakaeke, Ngāti Tautahi, Te Matarahurahu and Te Uri o Hua.

Event organiser and spokesperson for hapū collective Te Tiahotanga, Mane Tahere joined Kerre Woodham.
