Trying to find out information on a shooting in Canberra

By dr phil 4 November 2009 24

Does any one know what happened in Canberra outside the old cinema in the 1960’s or 1970’s.

What I have so far from an old guy that said this happend was.

A man with a high powered weapon opened fire so police shoot at him and his 4×4. Then the old guy telling me the story says and the rest is history and no one talks of it.

BUT! no recorded news of the incident. Did any one die, was the gunmen a local. I have searched high and low with no luck but maybe someone on the riot act may know.

What’s Your opinion?

I blame the factory chickens. He must have been a sensitive soul driven mad by having to keep chickens in tiny cages. (Apologies to anyone directly affected by the tragedy, but when there’s the chance of a cheap joke, nothing is sacred).

How strange to have that article in a flower shop website. Are they trying to sell flowers to guys who plan to do this kind of thing?

Do you people not listen. Jolimont was 1993

Take it from someone who was there in a professional capacity who has already clarified it for you
