"Invercargill shooting – nationwide appeal"
Nearly a fortnight after a shooting in Invercargill, a national television appeal’s being made to find a man wanted over the incident.
There is a warrant to arrest 24-year-old Anthony Miles Tamaiti Watkins in relation to the shooting on Saturday 30th June.
“It’s important that we find Watkins.
That’s why we’ll be making an appeal on the popular television programme Police Ten 7 tonight,” says Detective Chris Lucy.
“While Police continue to make enquiries, the more people who see a picture of Watkins, the greater chance we have of arresting him.
The community holds the key to finding him.
“As we’ve previously said, Watkins can be unpredictable, so we advise any member of the public who sees him to call 111,” says Detective Lucy.
Watkins has connections to Invercargill, Dunedin and the Bay of Plenty.
Earlier this week the victim of the shooting was released from hospital and continues to recover at home.
If the any members of the public can help with ongoing enquiries to locate Watkins, please contact Invercargill Police on 03 211 0400.
Alternatively, people can make anonymous calls to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
