Armed Crime Squad detectives are appealing for public assistance to help locate Ricky Brockdorff as part of their ongoing investigation into a non-fatal shooting in Docklands earlier this month.
A charge-and-warrant has been issued for the 32-year-old’s arrest in relation to an incident where a woman sustained a gunshot injury at an apartment complex on Rakaia Way around 12.20am on Saturday 17 July.
The victim, a 25-year-old Hoppers Crossing woman, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
She remains in hospital in a serious condition.
Detectives have released an image of Brockdorff in the hope someone may recognise him and be able to provide information on his current whereabouts.

He has a number of distinctive tattoos including a teardrop under his right eye and tribal pattern on his right arm.

Investigators believe Brockdorff has access to firearms and is actively avoiding police.
