Two men have been rushed to hospital after a shooting spree through Mandurah overnight.
Skeer Media broke the news that shootings had taken place across Dudley Park, Coodanup and Meadow Springs between the hours of 7:30pm and 10:30pm.
Mandurah detectives said a man, in his 40s, was injured after a group of 3-4 people driving a sedan, forced entry into home on Steerforth Drive in Coodanup.
It’s alleged the group threatened the occupants and demanded money and drugs before assaulting the man.
“It is believed the offenders discharged a firearm before leaving,” investigators said.
Skeer Media understands the man, drove to Peel Health Campus after suffering “critical injuries”.
A St John Ambulance spokesperson said a man was transferred to Royal Perth Hospital about 11pm, “under priority one” conditions with an injury resembling a “gunshot wound.”
However, the WA Police Media unit was adamant no one was shot during the incidents overnight.
“For clarification, no person has been shot,” the unit told WA news rooms.
“The injuries received by the men were not caused by a firearm.
“The firearm discharges at the homes in Coodanup and Meadow Springs were not directed at people.”
Police cordoned off a Coodanup property on Steerforth Drive near Duverney Crescent where the incident took place.
A car parked in the driveway of the home was witnessed with several smashed windows.
The home was guarded by detectives early into Tuesday morning, as forensic police combed the scene involving blood splatter.
A Meadow Springs home was also targeted with a similiar incident unfolding.
Police swarmed Killarney Retreat as shots were fired during a major disturbance.
Detectives said a man, in his 30s, was injured after a group of 3-4 people driving a sedan, forced entry into the home before they threatened the occupants and demanded cash and drugs.
The man was allegedly assaulted before he was rushed to Peel Health Campus with serious injuries.
“It is believed the offenders discharged a firearm before leaving,” detectives said.
Skeer Media understands the Tactical Response Group (TRG) assisted police with their investigation overnight.
Detectives guarded the area as forensic police moved in on their third Mandurah scene of the evening.
Investigators believe the two events are linked to an earlier incident, where shots were fired from a weapon in Dudley Park.
According to witnesses several loud bangs were heard on Waterside Drive about 7:45pm.
A witness, not named for security reasons, told Skeer Media that a car put on it’s headlights before someone in the vehicle opened fire, shooting up to eight times, at a home near the boat ramp.
Police rushed to the scene and Waterson Drive was closed for more than 30 minutes as detectives probed the area.
Investigators were particularly interested in a phone box at the scene but left the area soon after.
Police later confirmed that “several shots were fired into [the] telephone box.”
As of Tuesday morning, police said both men remained in hospital but were expected to make a full recovery.
