Officers were called to a rural property on Wright Road in Waiau Pa yesterday afternoon, where they helped a man with a gunshot wound.

The man was taken to Middlemore Hospital in a critical, but stable, condition.

A 37-year-old man has been arrested after the shooting, and charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Meanwhile, a scene examination was set to take place today at the site of Saturday's fatal shooting on Darnell Crescent in Clover Park.

Police confirmed the two events were unrelated.
