Police seek information on gunshot victim

1:17 pm on 8 April 2015

Canterbury police want to know how a man suffering a gun shot wound and dropped at the city's hospital came to be injured in the first place.

They said two men with known gang connections dropped the 40-year-old wounded man at Christchurch hospital on Sunday morning.

Police said the two men had been extremely reluctant to talk about what happened and while the victim was in a stable condition in hospital, it would be a while before the police could talk to him.
