NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 11/10/2016

A man has died and another has been arrested after a shooting in the Hawke's Bay settlement of Mohaka.

The 43-year-old was pronounced dead after emergency services rushed to a rural home near Wairoa following reports of gunfire at 11am on Thursday.

Police say he had suffered a gunshot wound.

A 62 year-old man, who knew the victim, was arrested shortly after at the address and no one else is being sought.

A Hawke's Bay Rescue Helicopter helicopter was called to the scene at about 11.30am but turned back when pilots were told the patient had died, a spokeswoman said.
