A man has been charged with the murder of Porirua man Hone Pawa.
The 23-year-old victim was killed in a fight on Thursday evening.
The accused, also 23, was not known to Pawa, police said on Sunday.
"While an arrest has been made, there is still a range of further inquiries to be completed by the investigation team," said Det Snr Sgt Christiaan Barnard.
Police are still hoping to hear from people who saw a white 1996 Toyota Corolla sedan involved in the incident on Thursday night.
"We ask that anyone with information contact police on (04) 381 2000, or provide information anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
The accused will appear in court on Monday.
