Enquiries are underway after an incident in Tokoroa that left a number of people injured.

Police received several reports of loud bangs at an address in Charles Street, Tokoroa, about 1.25am on Sunday.

Initial enquiries indicate a man fired a weapon toward a group of partygoers on the road, says a police spokesperson.

Two young men were in Waikato Hospital on Monday with shrapnel wounds.

Several other people also sustained minor to moderate injuries.

Detective Sergeant Mihi Owen says it appears a group of youths were turned away from the party shortly before the incident.

"The group made threats and threw bottles toward the partygoers.

"They left the scene in a blue Mazda RX8 and a dark grey vehicle, possibly a Jeep."
