Yesterday's fatal shooting of a male police officer was the first Police death since 2009.

The shooting in the West Auckland suburb of Massey has rocked the nation.

The other victim, a policeman, remains in hospital after suffering serious injuries.

Before yesterday, Senior Constable Len Snee was the last officer to be killed - he was shot in May 2009 in Napier.

TV One Fair Go reporter Anna Burns Frances joined The Weekend Collective Panel to discuss the issues making the news this week.
