A review of the case took place via teleconference today.

The 16-year-old is charged with possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition.

In December, Judge John Walker granted the teen bail to a specified address, with electronic monitoring and 24-hour supervision by a community agency.

A Family Group Conference involving Oranga Tamariki and the teenager's whānau is yet to be held.

The next court date is set for 26 February at the Porirua Youth Court.
