Police said that one of the shots passed through an exterior wall and into a neighbour’s home, just missing a sleeping resident.

The attack on the Calwell house has seen a 24-year-old Canberra man charged with attempted murder after he was extradited from Melbourne while trying to leave the country. Police are now appealing for more information as they try to find the others involved in the internal feud between outlaw motorcycle gangs.

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

“It is absolutely shocking and outrageous to think that in our capital city this type of criminal behaviour is ongoing but certainly it’s here and it’s real,” Superintendent Scott Moller said.

“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.

“From an ACT Policing perspective, this is our highest priority and we are committing all of our available resources to solve this crime. 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.

My father moved out of this street after years of frustration with the Bikies who lived there in two separate houses and the others who would cruise around looking for trouble or making noise.

It’s a joke that the ACT Government continues ignore to the issues and don’t seem to care about the daily living concerns for residents of Tuggeranong who are bearing the brunt of inter gang warfare.

Imagine the different response if a Bikie gang setup a home base in the inner North where the government leaders live.

It’s almost as if outlaw motorcycle gangs present a sufficient threat to warrant the government bringing in anti-consorting legislation.
