Sydney: 'Brazen' drive-by shooting

(no mention of race)

July 11, 2008

Shots were fired at a hair salon undergoing renovations in Brighton-Le-Sands yesterday for the second time in three weeks in what police are calling a "brazen" crime.

The business on Bay Street was first shot at on June 24. A white four-wheel-drive was seen in the area on that date and a vehicle matching that description was found torched in nearby Banksia three hours later....

The first shooting occurred about 9.30pm whereas yesterday's attack happened at 5pm in dwindling daylight.

Police believe yesterday's shooting was not random but have not disclosed any suspected motive for the crimes.

"It's brazen to do it at 5pm in the afternoon," Detective Inspector Bamford said....
