Police are asking for information about a white car possibly linked to the alleged murder of a man in Auckland’s Avondale on Saturday.
Mars Rakeem, 28, was found on October 2 at Saintly Lane with a gunshot injury. He was taken to hospital in a serious condition but died a short time later.
Two people have been arrested and charged in relation to the incident.
A 24-year-old man is facing murder and firearm-related charges, and the 20-year woman is facing charges of attempting to dissuade witnesses from giving evidence with threats of violence.
Detective Inspector Lloyd Schmid said police they were making further enquiries and were unable to rule out further charges on other people.
Police want information about sightings or the whereabouts of a white Mercedes C-63 Saloon with registration NGQ689.
Schmid said police think the car may be at, or may have been taken into, a vehicle painting or vehicle wrapping company.
He said Rakeem’s death was being treated as an “isolated incident”.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 105, quoting file number 211002/1241.
People can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
