News from NZ Police
Hutt Valley police investing last week’s fatal shooting in Petone are seeking the driver of a people-mover who may have information about shots that were fired at a bread van near Horokiwi.
The vehicle, a 2000-2006, gold or silver people mover, possibly a Toyota Previa, Estima or similar, was travelling north on the motorway near Horokiwi on Thursday 22 August.
It passed a Quality Bakers truck just before the Petone offramp at about 10.30pm.
Police are keen to speak to the driver and occupant, who may be able to provide crucial information about shots fired from a red 1994 Nissan Lucino, registration GKU810, which Police have previously appealed for sightings of.
A detailed forensic examination of this vehicle is being undertaken by Police alongside ESR scientists today.
Police will be laying a further charge of recklessly discharging a firearm when Shane Harrison appears in the Hutt Valley District Court today. It is likely Dillin Pakai will face a similar charge when he reappears in the Wellington District Court on Friday.
