Police are continuing to investigate the death of a Bay of Plenty man in Auckland.

This morning, police have executed a search warrant at a St Johns, Auckland address in connection with the homicide investigation into Clifford Umuhuri's death.

Clifford, from Whakatane, was found dead in Parkfield Terrace, Grafton on Monday morning after a shooting incident in St Johns, Auckland.

Detective Inspector Lloyd Schmid says a property on Lush Avenue was searched by police early this morning.
