Detectives charge man allegedly involved in Bonnyrigg shooting

Detectives have charged a man allegedly involved in a public place shooting at Bonnyrigg last year.

Emergency services were called to Tarlington Parade, just before 11.30pm on Monday, August 31, 2020, after shots were fired into a house.

Nine people - including two children - were home at the time but none were injured.

Officers from Fairfield City Police Area Command established a crime scene, which was forensically examined.

Detectives will allege the incident was part of an ongoing conflict between two groups in the area, which saw a series of public shootings in September last year.

Following extensive investigations, detectives stopped a Toyota Hilux utility on Young Street, Mount Pritchard, about 5.45am today.

The driver, a 19-year-old man, was arrested and taken to Fairfield Police Station.

As part of inquiries, detectives executed a search warrant at the man's home in Mount Pritchard about 7am, seizing cannabis.

The man was charged with firing a firearm at a dwelling-house with disregard for safety and possessing a prohibited drug.

He was refused bail to appear in Fairfield Local Court today.

Inquiries continue.
