ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations is investigating its second shooting incident in one week.

Police were called about 6am this morning (Friday, August 9) to a unit in Gungahlin after the resident woke to find a hole in a window. The resident had heard a noise and when they went to investigate located a hole in the window which appeared to be from a bullet.

Members from Gungahlin Police Station attended and assessed the damage, confirming a bullet hole in to a window of a unit on Anthony Rolfe Avenue.

AFP Forensic Services will conduct an examination later this morning.

Detectives from Criminal Investigations are conducting enquiries into the incident.

Anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious overnight on Anthony Rolfe Avenue is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I will never tease Gungahlin Al again, as he must be a warlord.

Johnboy, a quick look at this recent story and a Google image search for ‘Kandahar’ makes me question both your aesthetic comparison qualifications and your mathematical skills. Seems a long bow to draw to compare a bullet through a window with ongoing indiscriminate violence and unrest, and just a little insensitive to those who have left Kandahar and might appreciate a place like Gungahlin where things are so quiet that a bullet passing through a window and injuring no one (nor, it seems, even waking anyone) gets the attention of a semi-competent police force.

whhhhhhaaaaaaaaa

Different premises, right opposite the police station.

Anthony Rolfe is a pretty long street. It may have not been near the police station

There is a pic showing the police tape outside the unit shown here – which is definitely right across the road from the police station – literally even

ACT Policing tweets suggest it was across the road from the police station.

I hope the disturbing trend of drive-by shootings in Sydney doesn’t catch on here.

no trees, ugly boxy architecture, guns going off

And in the middle of know where.

Police are tweeting the station is manned 24/7

damien haas 9:58 am 09 Aug 13

Perhaps a town the size of Gungahlin warrants a police station that is open and manned 24 hours a day.

Kandahar? So are we implying that it is Afghani immigrants, or American drones?

Different premises, right opposite the police station. What was someone saying in the other thread about no-one hearing it?

So I wonder whether the tattoo shop was purely coincidence, with everyone leaping to the obvious conclusion, while it could have been any of the tenancies along there?

Can only hope the police have security cameras that may have caught something, given it is so much closer to them this time.

Well, I guess 78 Saab did start here in Canberra.

You can run, you can hide
Bomb and you take
But you’ll never be free, never be free
