Whangarei police continue to investigate the circumstances around the deaths of two men killed in a double shooting in the city.

Police have declined to name the two men, but notices placed in the Northern Advocate have named them as Garry (Gazza) John Raines and Daniel (Danz) Rupert Raines.

The relationship between the two men was not specified in the notices, but their funeral would be held at the same place and same time on Thursday.

Police were called to a house on McMillan Ave, Kamo, about 1.15pm on Saturday.


One man was found dead at the property after he'd been shot. Another man, who had a gunshot wound, was taken to hospital in a critical condition and died later.

A service for both will be held in the Chapel of Morris and Morris Funeral Homes, in Whangarei at 10am.

Police were not looking for anyone else in relation to the fatal incident.
