A 37-year-old man has been charged with murder after the death of a man at what's believed to be a boarding house on Auckland's North Shore.
Police were called to an Akoranga Drive property on Thursday night where they found a person with critical injuries.
Despite being rushed to hospital, the man died shortly after.
A second man, who suffered minor injuries, was also taken to hospital.
On Friday the Waitematā Police revealed a man has been charged with murder and a further charge in relation to the injuries sustained by the second victim.
It is not known if the charged is the same person who was arrested on Thursday and taken into police custody.
Detective Inspector Aaron Proctor says the man is due to appear in the North Shore District Court on Saturday.
"We hope this arrest will provide some reassurance to the community," Proctor said.
The Police said they are unable to comment further on the identity of the deceased man until his next of kin have been notified.
Neighbours had told Newshub they had heard a man calling for help from an upper window of the building before police arrived around 5:30pm.
One witness said she was on her way home from AUT's north shore campus when she saw the incident.
"There were two men - one older gentleman outside on the ground and another in a station wagon - and I couldn't hear what they were saying, but I think they were just telling him to hold on."
She said the man did not say what was happening and was "just screaming for help".
