Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - FRONT PAGE - By ZOE MCMAUGH

Two shots were fired through the front win­dow of a De­niliquin home on Sun­day, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

The shots were heard by a neigh­bour about 1.10am, who re­ported the in­ci­dent when po­lice con­ducted a door knock through the area on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Po­lice have con­firmed no-one was in­side the Rus­sell St home when the shots were fired.

The neigh­bour who re­ported the sounds of gun­fire to po­lice said the home which was the tar­get of gun­fire was less than a block away from her own home.

She said the shots seemed even closer when she heard them.

‘‘I was at home on my own and about to doze off when I heard the first shot,’’ the wo­man said.

‘‘Within about 10 sec­onds there was an­other one and that’s when I looked at the phone to check the time.’’

The neigh­bour said she was un­sure at first whether to con­tact po­lice about the in­ci­dent, and sought feed­back from other peo­ple liv­ing in the same area, ask­ing whether they had heard any­thing.

‘‘It wasn’t un­til po­lice came knock­ing on my door that I re­mem­bered to let them know what I had heard,’’ she said.

Fol­low­ing con­fir­ma­tion of shots be­ing fired, de­tec­tives and crime scene in­ves­ti­ga­tors were no­ti­fied and at­tended the scene.

Po­lice said in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing to iden­tify who was in­volved in this in­ci­dent. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact De­niliquin de­tec­tives on 5881 9299, or CrimeS­top­pers on 1800 333 000. Calls to CrimeS­top­pers can re­main anony­mous.
