Invercargill Police are seeking information about a blue Ford Falcon as part of the investigation into a firearms incident in Winton.

A team of investigators are still interviewing witnesses to the incident to piece together what occurred before and after the shooting on Monday.

The investigation team is particularly interested in the movements of a navy blue 2002 Ford Falcon sedan which was in the area of Park St and Arthur St at the time of the shooting.

The vehicle is described as having shiny mag wheels. It is believed to have travelled to Invercargill after the incident.

Anybody with any information or sightings of the vehicle is asked to contact Police on 105, or call Crime Stoppers anonymously, and refer to file 211206/3509.

A 19-year-old male has been charged with attempted murder and was remanded in custody following an appearance in Invercargill District Court yesterday.

Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to the incident.

While the Armed Offenders Squad was attempting to safely locate the offender, cannabis plants were located at a neighbouring property. This cannabis is not related to the victim or the accused.
