Two people have been arrested and charged for allegedly being involved in an incident where shots were fired at a home in Deniliquin’s Russell St at the weekend.

Deniliquin Police Inspector John Aichinger said in what police believe was a targeted attack, two shots were fired at the home just after 1am on Sunday.

Investigations led police to a Finley home where a 44 year-old woman was arrested and charged with multiple alleged firearms offences.

Yesterday, a 59 year-old Savernake man handed himself in to police.

‘‘On Tuesday, a search warrant was executed at a residence in Finley with items being located for further investigation,’’ Insp Aichinger said.

‘‘A 44 year-old female who lives at that residence was then arrested, interviewed and charged with possess unauthorised firearm, possess ammunition without a licence and fire firearm at a dwelling house with disregard for safety.

‘‘She was bail refused by police and conveyed to Albury Local Court where she was again bail refused.’’

Insp Aichinger said the man was arrested yesterday and charged with the same three offences.

He was bail refused to appear in Albury Court yesterday.

The result of the bail hearing was unknown when the Pastoral Times went to print.

‘‘A subsequent search warrant was carried out at his residence where again items were located for further investigation,’’ Insp Aichinger said.

Police confirmed no-one was injured when the shots were fired at the Russell St home.

The shotgun blasts reportedly damaged furniture, a wall and other items.
