Faapaia Fonoilaepa, a 29-year-old painter, was stabbed during an altercation fight in Taita on Friday night.

A 50-year-old man was arrested in Hastings last night, and charged with the possession of a firearm and the possession of a knife.

Police allege he was an occupant of the silver station wagon seen leaving the scene.

Another man was arrested shortly after Mr Fonoilaepa was killed.

He was charged with assault, before being released on bail.
