Man Injured in Shooting in Sydney’s South-West

A man has been wounded in a shooting incident in Sydney’s south-west. The New South Wales police responded to a car park on Canterbury Road, Campsie, at approximately 9:20 pm on Tuesday. The victim, a 27-year-old man, was found with head and chest wounds. Paramedics treated him at the scene before he was taken to St George Hospital in a serious condition.

In a separate incident nearby, a car crashed on Kilkee Avenue, Kingsgrove. The vehicle, a Mercedes sedan, caught on fire, but fortunately, there were no injuries reported, and firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze.

Crime scenes have been established at both locations, and the police have launched Strike Force Faux to investigate any potential links between the car fire and the shooting.

Residents in Kingsgrove were startled by the events. Irene Forrester, a local resident, recalled hearing a loud bang outside her window around 9 pm. She immediately looked out and saw the car engulfed in flames. Forrester expressed her fear, stating that such incidents were uncommon in her neighborhood.

Additional burnt-out cars were discovered at Larien Crescent in Birrong and Leonie Crescent in Berala. However, the police have not found any connection between these incidents and the shooting or car fire.

The authorities are now urging anyone with CCTV or dash-cam footage of the incidents to come forward. This may help in their investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting and if there is any correlation with the car fire.
