Counties Manukau Police are searching for two Tongan men as part of a homicide investigation following an incident this morning where a male was located deceased in Mangere, Auckland, New Zealand.

Police were notified around 6am to reports that two people were lying on the ground on Greenwood Road.

A 28-year-old male was discovered deceased and a female had serious injuries.

The female victim has been transported to Auckland Hospital where she is being treated for gunshot wounds.

Detective Inspector Faa Va’aelua says Police have been speaking with the victim to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.

“We are confident that this is not a random incident and we are currently following positive lines of enquiries to identify two Tongan male offenders believed to be involved in this incident,” says Detective Inspector Va’aelua.

A cordon will remain in place today on Greenwood Rd while staff carry out a scene examination and a forensic analysis of a vehicle located at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Counties Manukau Crime Squad on 09 261 1321 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
