ACT Policing has released CCTV footage from an attempted murder in Calwell in June 2018 and is asking the community to assist in identifying the offenders.

At approximately 10.45pm on Thursday June 28, four men entered the backyard of a house on Carter Crescent, Calwell.  Inside this yard the men set fire to three vehicles and discharged a number of firearms through the rear glass doors into the premises.

The resident suffered a gunshot wound to the hand and was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital.

One of the shots passed through an exterior wall and into a neighbour’s home just missing a sleeping resident.

Superintendent Scott Moller said this type of violent activity is unacceptable in our community.

“To have multiple shots discharged in this incident and to have one bullet narrowly miss an innocent person only highlights the grave risk these offenders pose to our community,” Superintendent Moller said.

“We are urging anyone with information relating to this incident, or who may be able to identify the offenders to come forward.”

Police are urging anyone who may have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6281610. Information can be provided anonymously.
