As the ABC and the Australian media were still pushing anti-firearm rhetoric, 3 shootings occurred in Melbourne:
“Police arrested two men, including a 19-year-old Melton man over Sunday’s alleged non-fatal shooting on Point Cook Rd, Seabrook, at a shopping centre on Lake St, Caroline Springs about 6.30pm on Tuesday. The other man is helping police with their inquiries.
It is alleged a group of men had a heated argument Sunday which escalated and resulted in a 27-year-old Melton West man being shot in his lower body. Meanwhile, a 28-year-old Meadow Heights man was arrested at home about 2.45pm on Tuesday over an alleged non-fatal shooting in nearby Castella Court on Sunday night.
Police allege two men were arguing in the driveway of a home when a gun was produced and a 30-year-old was shot in the leg. The arrests come as police investigate a night of violence across Melbourne’s suburbs on Sunday night.
Police are continuing to piece together what happened to a man found outside a Berwick shopping centre with life-threatening injuries. The victim, an Indian man aged in his 20s to early 30s, was found lying on Beldale Court near Parkhill Plaza with serious head and upper body injuries about 10.20pm.”
Over in Perth:
“A 25-YEAR-OLD man is recovering in hospital after being gunned down at his Westminster home overnight.The victim was shot by an unidentified gunman in left ankle inside the open garage of his Poynings Street address at 8pm. He was shot twice more in the hip as he tried to flee into the house before the offender ran off.”
“A man has been shot and two cars set on fire in Canberra’s south overnight in what police believe is a bikie-related incident. Emergency services were called about 10:30pm to Kalgoorlie Crescent in Fisher after receiving reports of gun shots and explosions.
Police arrived to find two heavy-duty utes alight and the man with gunshot wounds to his groin and shoulder.”
And then this:
“A family has narrowly avoided being shot after their Melbourne home was peppered by bullets in a drive-by shooting. The mother, a school teacher, her partner and her 20-year-old son were asleep when a gunman fired at least half a dozen shots at their Carmel Court, Glen Waverly home.
They’ve been left shaken by the ordeal but say they can’t understand why their house was shot at.”
No comment from Tim Fischer or any comment from Michael Keenan as to why these weren’t handed in at the amnesty.
Couldn’t find them on David Shoebridge’s toomanyguns website either, what a surprise.
