Appeal for information following Tarneit aggravated burglary and shooting

Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad are appealing for information following an aggravated burglary in Tarneit earlier this month where shots were fired.

It’s believed two men forced their way into a residential property on Nottingham Crescent about 10.30pm on Saturday, 17 February.

The pair then confronted one of the residents, a 33-year-year-old man, and a number of shots were fired.

One grazed the man on his lower body, causing a minor injury.

The men then left the address by unknown means.

The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are still being determined, however police believe it was a targeted attack.

Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who may have CCTV or dash-cam footage from the area on the night, or who may know more about the incident.
