Police investigating the fatal shooting of a Police officer in Massey have charged a man with Murder.


A 24-year-old man has been arrested and charged with multiple serious offences including Murder, Attempted Murder and Dangerous Driving Causing Injury.


He will be appearing in the Waitakere District Court today.


“The investigation into this incident is ongoing and Police are not able to rule out the possibility of further persons being charged,” says says Commissioner of Police Andrew Coster.


“Our thoughts are with the family of the slain Police officer and we are continuing to ensure they are provided with all possible support.


“The other injured Police officer and member of public remain in hospital in a serious but stable condition and we are also supporting them and their families.”


Police will not be in a position to confirm the identity of the Police officer until today at the earliest.

I should have added best wishes to the injured member of public

Three Weeks Ago

Just three weeks ago children in Tauranga were holding up signs saying “Disarm The Police.” I wonder what their thoughts are today. Will they be preparing their protest against the killing of a police officer or maybe they just don’t care as it’s not a social media bandwagon that they can virtue signal on. Condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the slain officer and best wishes to the injured officer.
