Fatal shooting to feature on crime show

1 min read

The fatal shooting of George Taiaroa in Atiamuri two weeks ago will feature on Police Ten-7 this week.

George was killed as he operated a stop-go sign on the single lane Tram Road bridge on the afternoon of Tuesday, 19 March.

Police, who are yet to establish a motive for the shooting, have since been appealing for sightings of a vehicle believed to be a dark blue Jeep Cherokee.

A team from the TV2 crime show visited the scene of the shooting earlier this week and Detective Inspector Tim Anderson walked Police Ten-7 presenter Graham Bell through the events of that day to film an appeal.

Graham Bell said: "This crime is very much a mystery. I'm confident there are people out there who can help and there are still more sightings and information that will assist the police."

The programme is scheduled to air at 7.30pm on TV2 tomorrow night (Thursday, 4 April).

In the meantime anyone with information is asked to contact the investigation team directly on 0800 Kingswood (0800 546 479). Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Media enquiries should be referred to Communications Manager Kim Perks on 027 234 8256.
