Statement can be attributed to Northland District Criminal Investigations Manager,  Detective Inspector Dene Begbie:

Northland Police have arrested and charged a man with murder after a person died following an incident in Whangārei late last night.

The 20-year-old man will appear in the Whangārei District Court tomorrow.

A 17-year-old youth has also been charged with injuring with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and will appear in the  Whangārei Youth Court tomorrow.

While arrests have been made, the investigation team is not ruling out that charges may be filed in relation to other individuals.

We also have a number of witnesses who were in the Bank Street area at the time who we still need to identify and speak with.

We are wanting to review any footage or photos people may have captured of this incident, or the Bank Street area, immediately before, during or after the incident.

A dedicated portal has been set up to allow anyone with images or recordings to download this information.
