On Tuesday, a family of six were wrongly targeted in a drive-by shooting in the suburb of Merrylands, about 40km away.

NSW Police Acting Superintendent Darren Beeche said at the time a “coward” shot at the wrong house.

“The family in that house I believe had nothing to do with crime, gangs or drugs,” he said.

“These people have bad intelligence and it’s usually a cowardly act by a coward in the middle of the night and unfortunately they often get the wrong place.”

In nearby Blacktown a few days earlier, another house was mistakenly targeted.

A family were forced to duck for cover as their home was shot at. There were no reported injuries.

A Constitution Hill House, in between Blacktown and Merrylands, was shot at about 3.30am on Anzac Day.
