A MAN AND a woman accused of shooting a New Zealand cabbie will go before a jury in April, after a mental health report for the male has been compiled.
Wellington taxi driver Alem Tesema was hit in the right shoulder after picking up a man and woman from Courtenay Place and dropping them off in Stone Street, Miramar.
Mr Tesema was shot with a small, low calibre pistol and managed to drive away from the scene of the shooting and receive treatment at a hospital.
Paris Te Aroha Ohuka (17) and Dylan Nuku (26) are jointly charged with possession of a firearm and intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Mr Nuku’s lawyer told a preliminary hearing that his client suffered from schizophrenia and that a mental health report was needed to establish if he was insane at the time of the offence.
