Police investigating a man's "murder" following a shooting in Wellsford last night have located a vehicle of interest.
Officers are conducting scene examinations today following reports last night of a person in a vehicle being shot about 7.45pm on Wayby Station Rd.
Police arrived to find the man dead at the scene.
"Police would like anybody who knows or has seen a black Range Rover, registration KBK990, or its occupants in the Rodney or Northland areas in the past few days, to contact them on 105 and quote file number 201128/2875," Detective Inspector Scott Beard said.
