Police are investigating an incident where a man was allegedly shot at an address in Pareora at around 1:45pm yesterday.

A police spokeswoman said when officers arrived, a man was found to have a suspected gunshot wound and was transported to Christchurch Hospital for treatment. 

“Police have conducted a scene examination and are continuing to establish the circumstances of the incident and to locate the person/s responsible.”

Anyone in Pareora that has any information that may assist Police and that hasn’t already spoken to police, is asked to get in touch.

Police are particularly interested in locating a white sedan that left the address shortly after the incident and was seen turning south onto SH1 at the entrance to Pareora.

“We would also be interested in viewing dash cam footage from anyone who was in or around the Pareora and St Andrews area at the time of the incident.”

Any sightings of the vehicle and anyone who has footage that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Detective Scott Genet by emailing [email protected] or by calling 105 quoting file number 210710/7344 .
