A shark attack today (Feb. 27) killed a New Zealand man swimming at Muriwai Beach, a popular swimming and surfing area near Auckland.

Several sharks were involved in the attack on Adam Strange, 46, according to witnesses, though a 12- to 14-foot long (3.5- to 4.3-meter) great white shark is believed to have initiated the strike, CNN.comreported.

Police responded immediately to the attack: Officers fired several shots from an inflatable boat and a police helicopter at the great white shark and reportedly hit the animal, according to the New Zealand Herald. The shark swam off, however, leaving police to wonder if it is still alive.
