An Australian tourist has been shot dead in an attempted robbery in New Zealand.
The incident has occurred in Raglan.
Police say the Australian man and a Canadian woman were sleeping in their campervan and were woken by a stranger banging on their window.
It’s believed the man demanded the keys to their campervan before the Australian was shot multiple times.
His partner managed to escape, running several kilometres for help.
Local police say the body of a man was found in a stolen van on Gordonton Road, 80km from the original crime scene.
Another one of our ferals with nothing better to do?
Cindy and kelvin will give him hugs and will not be appearing in a aussie bush mans hat in a show of sympathy with the murdered Australian.
