A woman charged in relation to a gang shooting in North Canterbury has been told she's free to leave the court.
The judge granted the Crown request to dismiss charges against Tove Paranihi in the Christchurch District Court on Tuesday.
The shooting in Kaiapoi on January 4 left Fairmont Wiringi, the son of a Mongrel Mob leader, seriously injured.
Wiringi's father Joseph is a Mongrel Mob president and his brother Fairlane is also a patched member of the gang.
