The man arrested following a shooting in New Plymouth last night has chosen not to appear in court today and has been voluntarily remanded in custody.
Kerryn Tioro has been charged with unlawful possession of a shotgun, wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and driving while disqualified.
The 43-year-old will reappear in the New Plymouth District Court on Thursday.
Mr Tioro's arrest followed a shooting yesterday in the suburb of Spotswood, in which a man suffered a serious gunshot wound to his leg.
The injured man is in a serious condition in Waikato Hospital.
