A 45-year-old man is being sought by police after shooting another man in Levin on Wednesday.

Jamie Ronaki Kissling has evaded detection for two days since he shot a man with an air rifle on Wednesday after a dispute. The man received minor injuries.

Police said at the time he was not a danger to the public, but this morning said he should not be approached.

Anyone with information of his whereabouts should contact their nearest police station, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
