Fiji's police are questioning a 10-year-old boy over the death of a 6-year-old boy from New Zealand in a shooting incident at Sabeto in Nadi on Saturday.

Fiji Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the 10-year-old is believed to have been playing with the deceased and a 14-year-old when the incident happened.

“He was taken in for questioning in the presence of his parents. The interview was suspended last night and will resume today," Naisoro said.

“The gun owner's interview will also resume this morning.”
 
The 14-year-old had an operation yesterday and is in stable condition at the Lautoka Hospital. 
 
Media identified the deceased today as Mohammed Khubeb Khan who arrived from Auckland with his dad to build their home at Sabeto Hill three weeks ago.
 
The family had only completed building their home and was inspecting it at around 6pm Saturday when they were alerted by the gunshot. When they arrived to the vehicle where the gun was kept, they discovered the two boys on the ground covered in blood.
 
Both victims were rushed to the Lautoka Hospital where the 6-year-old was pronounced dead upon arrival.
 
A relative, called Mohammad Khan, told the Courier Mail no adults were present so it was difficult to say what had happened.
 
"It (the gun) was all locked up and how (it) got into the hands of the other little gentleman and how it happened is yet to be ascertained."
