Anthony Brett Clegg has been arrested after a two-week manhunt in connection with the fatal shooting of a man in Hamilton last month.

The man died of a gunshot wound at a house on Seddon Rd in Frankton on May 30.

Clegg, 39, had a warrant out for his arrest for unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the shooting.

Police said he was avoiding them and warned the public he should not be approached.

A 23-year-old woman was charged on May 31 over the shooting. She is alleged to have used a makeshift weapon which accidentally discharged and killed the man.
