National says it would have liked to see Auckland gang members arrested this morning.

There was a spate of shootings across the city overnight, in Ōtara, Papatoetoe, Flat Bush, Papakura, Te Atatū, Mount Albert and Henderson.

National's Mark Mitchell told Mike Hosking search warrants should have been executed this morning.

“When we talk about seven isolated shootings, you’re talking about dozens of houses and occupants that are at risk.”

Meanwhile, Labour's Megan Woods says the Government put money aside in the Budget for this issue.

“There’s nearly $100 million in there to further resource police to deal with this.”

A Police spokesperson says it's extremely fortunate no one has been harmed, saying they know the community will be as disgusted as they are by this "callous" behaviour.
