Several houses were hit and cars crushed as gang tensions boiled over in Ōtara Friday night.

Armed police stood outside several houses across the southern Auckland suburb.

At the corner of Capstick and Ivon Rds, several vehicles had been broken up and the home there had probably been shot multiple times.

The home is understood to be the center of the Tribesmen gang.
