Shooting charges laid



COFFS Harbour police have arrested and charged two men over a shooting at Dalmorton, roughly 50 kilometres south-west of Grafton, at the end of October.

Police allege on the night of October 21 the two men went to an Old Blacksmith's Shop Road residence, where they knocked on the door of the house, exchanged words with the 55-year-old owner and threatened him.

Police allege the men drove away from the property before returning and firing shots at the victim, who was standing outside his house.

Police claim the two men withdrew semi-automatic pistols and fired at least a dozen shots from semi-automatic pistols at their alleged victim before driving away in a Nissan Patrol 4WD.

Police said so far at least seven spent bullet cartridges had been recovered from the scene.

No one was injured.

The two men, aged 36 and 44 who come from Iluka and Arrawarra, were arrested and charged on November 28 with shooting with intent to murder and other offences.

They appeared before Coffs Harbour Local Court where they were remanded in custody and ordered to appear again on January 10.

Coffs Harbour detectives said they were yet to establish a motive for the alleged shooting.
