A Maketu teenager, accused of shooting dead a 46-year-old man in a local park, has been granted bail.
Tyrone Daniel Flavell, 19, faced one count of murder when he appeared in Tauranga District Court today.
Isaac Dale Bushell's body was discovered in a park at Beach Rd, Maketu after leaving a party nearby about 1.45am yesterday.
Police did not oppose bail for Flavell, who has been bailed on a raft of strict conditions, including regularly reporting to police.
For legal reasons the location of where the defendant has been bailed to has been suppressed.
Flavell's next court appearance is in the High Court at Tauranga on December 16.
He is yet to enter a plea to the charge.
