A woman who died in an east Auckland house on Tuesday evening has been named and a homicide investigation launched.

Senior Sergeant Kevin Tiernan said today the victim was 22-year-old Chozyn Koroheke.

"Police are still working to establish exactly what has occurred at the address yesterday evening but believe this was a domestic-related incident," he said.

A homicide investigation has been launched and Sgt Tiernan said they were "following positive lines of enquiry". 

"We have a person of interest in relation to this investigation however for operational reasons we are not able make any further comment at this stage."

At this stage it is unclear whether the cause of death was a shooting, as was originally reported.
