Risk to public low after targeted drive-by

POLICE say there is no risk to the public after a targeted drive-by shooting at a home in Bennett Springs early this morning.

Residents on Centaurus Road awoke at about 3.10am to three gunshots allegedly fired by a male driver of a Mitsubishi Lancer.

Midland detectives held a press conference this afternoon to ask for witnesses and CCTV footage of the incident to aid in their hunt for the accused shooter.

“At the time of the shots we’re aware there was a resident at home but they are uninjured as a result of this incident,” Detective Sergeant Suzannah Narducci told the media.

“Midland detectives have commenced a high priority investigation in order to try and identify the male offender.”

It is believed the home has been targeted several times in the past.

“We are aware of a previous incident which has occurred but can’t comment any further,” Sergeant Narducci said.

“The community should always remain vigilant, however as this is targeted we don’t have concerns for other members of the community.

“Any sort of violence and certainly gun violence within the community will not be tolerated by police.”

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
