Gang problems in Wairoa

From Nine To Noon, 9:30 am on 1 November 2010

The town of Wairoa has become synonymous with gang violence, and with two gang-related shootings in the past week, should the town be looking at banning patches? Police say the shooting of a 48-year old man on a petrol station forecourt on Friday evening may be gang-related and earlier last week, a 17-year-old man was shot in the chest outside the town's Mongrel Mob headquarters.
