Three people have been arrested over the death of a gang member who was dropped off at a St John ambulance station in Whangarei.

John "John Boy" Harris, 37, died from his injuries from a gunshot wound to the chest in October last year.

A 41-year-old man has been charged with a number of offences including murder and is due to appear in Whangarei District Court on Tuesday.

A 19-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were arrested on Friday and have been charged with accessory after the fact to murder.

"We hope that it will bring some closure to Mr Harris' friends, whanau and to the Whangarei community, " Detective Senior Sergeant John Miller said in a statement.

Mr Harris was a patched Tribesmen gang member, and its thought he was shot the result of an internal gang dispute over a vehicle, police said in October.
