Students in uniforms from Onehunga High School can be seen fighting a group of youths out of uniform, one of whom was armed with a machete.

In a video being widely shared online, one person can be heard yelling at the gunman to put down the “knife,” as others flee the fight.

At one point, a student can be seen trying to restrain those involved in the skirmish.

Police said investigations were underway to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Thursday’s incident and who was involved.

They said officers were called to reports of a group of youths involved in an altercation on Pleasant Street around 3:20 p.m., but the group had dispersed by the time they arrived.

Onehunga High School has been contacted for comment.
