A shooter is on the loose in Lower Hutt after a man was shot in the chest. 

A police spokeswoman said members of the armed offenders squad were called to an address in George St, in the suburb of Stokes Valley, about 2.15pm on Tuesday.

"Police originally thought a woman had been taken to hospital. However, it was a man that has been taken to hospital with a serious injury to their chest."

Inspector Scott Cooper, of Hutt Valley, said police initially thought there was a second victim, but had since discovered that was not the case.

There has been a spate of aggravated robberies in Christchurch, with three different dairies targeted in less than 24 hours.

Staff were left shaken but uninjured.

After the robbery they left in a Mazda Demio vehicle. The vehicle was recovered by police a short time later.

A picture from security footage shows one of the offenders - a male - holding what appears to be a hand gun.

Along with another offender - probably a female - they stole cash, cigarettes and pouches of tobacco, Mr Benn said.
