A man will appear in court today after police charged him over a shooting incident on the South Coast last March.
Shortly before 11pm on Sunday, March 25, a projectile was fired at a home unit in Grenville Avenue, Tuross Head.
Two women in the premises, who were watching television at the time, were uninjured but emergency services were contacted and attended a short time later.
A crime scene was established and a forensic examination of the property revealed that a high powered weapon had fired a round through a lounge room window and continued through the roof of the premises.
Batemans Bay detectives commenced their investigations into the incident and the officers obtained and executed a search warrant on a home in Jutland Avenue in Tuross Head.
During that search police located and seized a rifle, telescopic sight and ammunition.
A 46-year-old man was arrested at the scene and later conveyed to Moruya Hospital for treatment to unrelated injuries.
About 1pm yesterday the man was released from hospital where he was arrested and conveyed to Batemans Bay Police Station. He was later charged with seven firearm and domestic violence offences including fire firearm at dwelling house with reckless disregard.
He was refused bail and will appear at Batemans Bay Local Court today.
Investigators are seeking community assistance in relation to the incident and urge anyone with information to contact Batemans Bay Police on (02) 4472 0099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
