He has since been discharged. 

Today, the Armed Offenders Squad raided a property linked to the Mongols gang in Burnham, 28 kilometres south of Christchurch. 

The men, aged 24, 31, and 39 are expected to appear in the Christchurch District Court today, charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. 

While police aren’t looking for anyone else over the shooting, anyone who may have information or witnessed the incident is urged to contact police on 105.
