A white Subaru WRX was observed to have a damaged windscreen and a spent shell casing was located on the road in front of the vehicle.

The men said they were approached by two males wearing balaclavas, with one holding a firearm, described as a single-barrel long-arm. The male with the firearm struck the windscreen with the firearm and immediately after a shot was discharged.

Two males from a nearby home were taken to Tuggeranong Police Station and were assisting police with their enquiries.

Yesterday (Tuesday, December 2) detectives from Criminal Investigations executed three search warrants. During the search warrants police located ammunition in a Kambah home and a firearm and balaclavas in a business premises in Phillip.
