Update Gisborne Shooting - Operation Kowhai

The Gisborne CIB is continuing their investigation into the shooting of a 39 year old local man at a residential address in the suburb of Elgin overnight.

Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Scott said 'at approximately 2.40am this morning a male entered the address and made demands before shooting one of the occupants and leaving the scene in a vehicle. We believe this man is known to the two people who were at the address.

The victim was taken to Gisborne hospital by an ambulance crew where he remains in a serious and critical condition.

'A 42 year old Gisborne man was arrested by members of the Armed Offenders Squad at another local address shortly after the incident. He has been charged in connection with the incident and will be appearing in the Gisborne District Court tomorrow' says Mr Scott.

The Police with the assistance of forensic scientists from ESR are currently searching three addresses and a vehicle which are believed to be connected to this incident.

The firearm used in the shooting is still outstanding and Police would like anyone who has information in relation to this or the shooting to please contact the Gisborne Police station. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
