An artist has constructed face-fit images ACT Policing hopes will help identify two men believed to be involved in the aggravated burglary and shooting of a man in Bonner two months ago.

The shooting happened at a home in Roy Marika Street on Sunday, 27 June.

Police believe the incident began with at least two offenders attempting to enter the residence at about 5:45 pm.

After a short struggle, one of the offenders fired a single shot, which struck the occupant in the leg. The offenders then fled the location.

So they’re from Young?

Should be pretty easy to solve – the crooks these days are the ones not wearing masks, so it will be two of those.

Those photo fit images look like every second Young bloke I see on my daily walk.
