BBay Man extradited from NSW after Narrabundah shooting

ACT Policing Criminal Investigations detectives extradited a 22-year-old man from Bateman’s Bay, NSW yesterday afternoon (Wednesday, 23 June 2021) after a continuing investigation into a shooting in Narrabundah in November 2020. ACT Policing have been investigating a targeted shooting incident in Narrabundah earlier today (Tuesday, 3 November 2020).

About 2.40pm, police received reports of shots fired on Goyder Street, Narrabundah.

On arrival at the location, police confirmed a number of shots had been fired into a house and a car.

Officers established a crime scene and AFP Forensic Services attended to examine the area.

While no one was hurt during the incident, residents were at home at the time of the shooting.

ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations are leading the investigation, and believe this was a targeted attack.

At this time, police do not believe criminal gangs were involved.

Detective Inspector Matt Reynolds said at the time it was important to recognise this was a targeted attack rather than a random incident.

“Any firearm incident like this is no doubt a concern to the community, however police believe there is no ongoing threat to the public,” Detective Inspector Reynolds said.

The man was arrested by NSW Police on Tuesday (22 June 2021) and will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (Thursday, 24 June 2021) to face two charges of aid and abet the discharging of a firearm into a building. Bail will be opposed.

The 22-year-old is the second man arrested in relation to the shooting. Police executed a search warrant at a property in Wright about 11.30pm, Wednesday 4 November 2020. A 31-year-old man was arrested and taken to the ACT Regional Watch House. The man will face court on charges including act endangering life, discharging a firearm and property damage.
