To be attributed to Detective Superintendent Uraia Vakaruru: 
Police’s Critical Incident Investigation into the fatal shooting of Kaoss Price in April 2022 has been completed.
The Critical Incident Investigation was undertaken by senior and experienced staff from outside Central District, and was overseen by a Detective Superintendent appointed by the Assistant Commissioner Investigations. 
The investigation has determined that the force used by officers was legally justified and there is no criminal liability for the actions taken by officers that night. 
The investigation findings have been communicated to a representative instructed to work on behalf of Mr Price’s whānau.
The investigation has taken some time, and we would like to acknowledge the patience of all involved as the investigation progressed.
The fatal shooting of Mr Price is also the subject of an Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) investigation, and a Coronial Inquiry. 
As such, Police will be making no further comment at this time.
