    Police have said Heke is actively avoiding police and is known to have links to Hamilton, Auckland and Tauranga.

    Rollie James Heke went on the run in March after cutting off his electronic monitoring bracelet.

    He had several existing warrants to arrest for methamphetamine related offences and breaching bail conditions.

    In December 2014, Heke, who was in Rimutaka Prison at the time, was involved in a major methamphetamine importing ring allegedly run from behind bars.

    In September 2016 he was wanted for breaching bail conditions.

    10 tight shots on a windscreen sounds more like something from a semi-auto .22 than any "MSSA". Or even a repeater CO2 airgun? Anyone got an informative link?

    Does not quite sound right but here is my training program for the resource strapped:
    1. Learn to hold the gun tight in one hand (as you will anyway instinctively do in earnest situations), and to let off trigger without dropping the muzzle.
    2. Then raise it, focus eyes on the target and not the front sight (as you will do in an earnest situation), and shoot the target centre mass.
    3. Practice (2.) with the other 29 bullets.

    hope he's still got the firearm when the cops catch up with him & he decides to point it at some one. Community does not need scum like this. End of

    Definitely confirmed as a 7.62 so SKS, AK etc does it really matter? There is a lot to this situation and the comments about not aiming for Police do not stand up at all when you hear what actually transpired...I'm thankful that the Police involved directly in this incident got to go home to their family's.

    more holes in the windscreen for an sks even with a 10 round mag. skk maybe? or norinco (etc) 56.
    guarantee it was an illegal firearm looking at the shooters history

    The gun went off accidentally. He wasn't really shooting at the police. He had a hard childhood..etc etc Just some of the bs likely to be put forward by a defence lawyer

    I wouldn't even comment on the grouping until I knew the distance from the shooter to the windscreen.

    My uncle was in the police and he said that there's always one cops per x thousand number of people who carry on their person all the time. He also told me about the special tactical squad or something. That was quite interesting. Especially all of the military weapons they have.

    Hopefully the police sort this A....hole at soon with no blood spilled but his. I can see cries from the Anti's about further tighter gun laws for the likes of us.
    Sucks every time something like this happens.

    It's the law makers that need to change the terms if punishment. judges can only hand sentences acording to the law.
