Shot Fired

Police In 20 Minute Chase

Shot Fired

A shot has been fired into an upper level Gulliver unit, after the man disturbed two people trying to break into his lower neighbour’s home.

Police say the men allegedly fired as they ran off at around 11pm, the bullet broke a window. No one was injured.

They fled in a light coloured 4WD ute which was later seen at McDonalds at The Lakes at about.

Officers saw them just before 1am, approaching on foot and in a car, when the men tore through garden beds to get away.

Then at around 2am, they saw them again in Vincent. A 20 minute police chase ensued – going through the industrial estate, ending when the car got bogged near Domain Central.

An 18-year-old man was taken into custody while the other offenders are still on the run.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incidents, the vehicles or the offenders to contact Crime Stoppers or go to the local police station.
