A man arrested following the fatal shooting of a two-year-old girl in south Auckland has been granted bailed.

Police charged the 26-year-old with unlawful possession of a pistol on June 2 after finding a toddler dead with a gunshot wound at a home on Favona Road in Mangere Bridge.

Appearing in the Manukau District Court by video link on Friday, the man was released on bail with conditions.

An interim suppression on his name was also continued until he appears again in July.

Police at the time of the death said they had found a shotgun at the scene.

A couple and four children - including the girl - lived at the house and no one else was being sought, they said.
