Police yet to find motive for shot fired at house

Police are investigating whether a shot fired into a home at Salisbury North early this morning was a case of mistaken identity.

They have been unable to find a motive after a couple at the Taringa Rd home were awoken by the sound of a smashing window at about 1.30am.

When one of the occupants stuck his head out the bedroom door, a shot was fired at the front of the house.

He received minor injuries, but did not require medical treatment.

A car was heard leaving the area, but there is no description of it or its occupant.

Police say that although the victims are fully co-operating, they have been unable to establish a motive for the attack, or find any witnesses.

Detective Chief Inspector Krystina Koza from Elizabeth CIB said police have not identified any link between the shooting and drug use, drug dealing or outlaw motorcycle gangs.

"We are investigating the possibility that the shooting is a case of mistaken identity with the incorrect address having been targeted,” she said.

Anyone who saw or heard anything that may assist the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
