Shots have been fired and a garage was set alight overnight in Kambah in what could be a gang-related incident.

Police found a number of bullet holes at the front of the house and a fire in the garage at the rear of the property after they were called to O’Halloran Crescent shortly after 12:30 am this morning (14 February).

ACT Policing believes the incident was a targeted shooting and is appealing for any witnesses to come forward. Taskforce Nemesis, which targets illegal outlaw motorcycle gang activity in the ACT, is investigating the incident.

ACT Fire and Rescue extinguished the fire in the garage and a crime scene was established.

Anyone who may have any information that could assist police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.

ACT Policing will be providing further updates on the incident later today.

When are the Labor/Green government going to introduce the anti consorting laws like the other states and territories to make Canberra less attractive to move to? Now that Canberra it the only place gang members can socialise together without being arrested, it has become the best place for them to setup there head office to manage their illegal operations. The number of gangs that have now moved to Canberra over the last few years has tripled. Canberra is now a less safe place because of this weak response. Labor/Greens soft on crime, roll on the election………..

How many shootings, fires and violence have to happen in Tuggeranong before Police start actively policing the area and ACT Government introduce some laws to address these ongoing issues?

If it was happening in the inner north you could guarantee quick action.

bj_ACT the police are doing their best, it is the law makers that are letting us down!
