A man involved in a shooting at a beach near Wellington has pleaded guilty to attempted murder.

John Schuster, who is 44, appeared in the High Court at Wellington and was remanded in custody until he is sentenced next month.

Schuster was charged after an incident in April in which a man was shot at Makara Beach and flown to Wellington Hospital.

Justice Collins entered a conviction against Schuster and read him a First Strike Warning under the three strikes legislation.
