A man is undergoing surgery after being shot in the leg at an Auckland home.

The 51-year-old was shot in Hayr Road in the suburb of Three Kings on Tuesday night and a silver 1996 BMW saloon, registration BZL461, was taken from outside the property.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen the car.

Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty would not say what police believed was the motive for the attack or whether or not it was thought to be gang related.
