Northland police are still searching for a man who's wanted in connection with a gun fired in Ahipara yesterday.
Far North area commander Inspector Rik Whiu said Rawiri Ihaka is dangerous.
They have a warrant to arrest the 44-year-old for assaulting a person with a firearm.
Mr Ihaka is 182 centimeters tall and has a tattoo of a cross on his right forearm.
Police earlier recovered a rifle and car they believe were used by Mr Ihaka.
They have said he does not pose a risk to the wider public but is considered dangerous and should not be approached.
