    Counties Manukau Police are searching for two Tongan men as part of a homicide investigation following an incident this morning where a male was located deceased in Mangere, Auckland, New Zealand.

    Police were notified around 6am to reports that two people were lying on the ground on Greenwood Road.

    A 28-year-old male was discovered deceased and a female had serious injuries.

    The female victim has been transported to Auckland Hospital where she is being treated for gunshot wounds.

    Detective Inspector Faa Va’aelua says Police have been speaking with the victim to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.

    “We are confident that this is not a random incident and we are currently following positive lines of enquiries to identify two Tongan male offenders believed to be involved in this incident,” says Detective Inspector Va’aelua.

    A cordon will remain in place today on Greenwood Rd while staff carry out a scene examination and a forensic analysis of a vehicle located at the scene.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Counties Manukau Crime Squad on 09 261 1321 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
