A man described by police as extremely dangerous reportedly took a domestic flight out of Christchurch the same day of a shooting police say he’s connected to.

Hendrix Rawiri Jury​, 27, is wanted in connection with the shooting in central Christchurch on August 30th.

His mug shot was released several days after the incident.

The victim was taken to hospital in a serious condition and has since been discharged and is recovering at home.

In a post made on Twitter this evening, former Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters questioned how the man could escape Christchurch on a flight.

He also posted photos of the alleged wanted man.
