A 25-year-old man has been charged over the shooting of a 19-year-old man in Invercargill.
The accused, who has been granted interim name suppression, was arrested last week.
Police yesterday charged him with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The incident happened about 4.40pm on October 2 at a Tweed St property; the victim was shot four times in the back and needed surgery.
The accused appeared yesterday in the Invercargill District Court by audiovisual link, facing nine charges in total, including unlawful possession of ammunition, resisting police and burglary.
Counsel Scott Williamson told the court he was advised of the wounding charge in the morning and would need more time to discuss the matter with his client.
Judge Catriona Doyle remanded the accused in custody until his next appearance on November 13.
Last week, Whetu Taylor (36), Zane Ray Collins (21) and Rikki May Garthwaite-Smith (26) appeared in court in relation to the incident and were remanded in custody until November 9.
