10:24 am on 14 April 2016

A 35-year-old man detained by police yesterday in relation to a shooting in Kaitaia in February has been charged with attempted murder.

The drive by shooting in February left a 26-year-old man seriously injuried in the drive-by shooting. The incident was thought to have been gang-related.

Police say the arrested man will appear in the Kaitaia District Court this morning and will also face firearms charge.
