Possible gang link to shooting

Police investigating the shooting death of an Auckland man say they are looking at a possible gang connection.

Daniel Fifita Turner, 29, of Ranui, died on December 18 after being shot in the chest in west Auckland.

Detective Inspector Bruce Scott said police were now investigating links between the shooting and local members of the King Cobra gang.

A 26-year-old was injured in the shooting but has been discharged from hospital and is speaking to police.

Police wanted anyone who saw a man with heavily tattooed hands and forearms running from the property about 11pm that night to get in touch.

Anyone with information is asked to call Operation Larry staff at Waitakere Police on (09) 839 0600 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
