A drive-by shooting at a Colac house could have been a targeted attack, police say.
Neighbours called police after a car stopped outside a home in Wilson Street on Friday night, someone fired a shot into the home, and the car sped off.
Senior Detective Mick Palmer said the car, possibly a grey Ford sedan, pulled up outside a house in Wilson Street, west of the Queen Street intersection, about 10.40pm.
“One shot was discharged from a firearm,” Det Palmer said.
“The shot penetrated the front lounge room window of the house and went into the house,” he said.
“The car then took off up Wilson Street.”
Multiple neighbours heard the shot and called police, who attended the scene.
Det Palmer said police believed only one person lived in the house, and the resident was not at home at the time of the incident.
“No one was injured as a result,” he said.
Det Palmer said police believed the incident could have been a targeted attack.
“The occupier of the premises has been reluctant to assist police with their inquiries,” he said.
