Wednesday, December 06, 2017

Update: 1:43PM SHIRLEY, Christchurch: CHRISTCHURCH Police are investigating an incident where a man was shot while he was inside his Shirley home on Monday night.

Canterbury Metro Crime's Detective Sergeant Mike Freeman said at around 10.30pm, the man was in his house on Golf Links Road when he was hit with what they believe to be an air rifle.
