A 55-year-old has been taken into custody after a man appeared at hospital with gunshot wounds in Porirua yesterday.

He was speaking with police after a search warrant was executed in the same suburb today.

Police inquiries were initiated after a man appeared at hospital with gunshot wounds on Thursday.

“He has subsequently undergone surgery and is in a stable condition,” Wellington district police detective inspector Haley Ryan said.

“It is believed the victim and the offender are known to each other.”

Police say charges are “being considered”.

“The investigation is ongoing, and the Porirua community should expect to see an increased police presence in the area.

“Anyone with any information that will help us progress this investigation is asked to contact police by phone on 105.”
