A home linked to gang members has been searched as police continue to investigate a homicide in Lower Hutt late last month.
On December 17, two brothers were shot – one fatally – at a home on George St after an altercation broke out during a birthday party in which gang members were present.
Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Sears said information provided by the public has led them to carry out a search at 10am today.
“This vital information has led us to execute a search warrant this morning at an address linked to members of the Mangu Kaha gang,” he said.
Sears said no arrests have yet been made, however the warrant and seized items have “advanced” the investigation.
“What is clear from the community’s response to date is that they are sick of the behaviour of these gang members,” Sears said.
Anyone with information or CCTV footage from George St, Delaney Dr, August St and Amundsen Grove in Stokes Valley from 10pm on Friday, December 15 to 5am on December 16 has been urged to contact police.
