Man shot at in domestic violence incident

A MAN has been shot at after trying to intervene in a domestic violence-related incident at a house in Sydney’s south-west.

Police were called to reports of a man and woman fighting outside a home on Dwyer Road at Leppington about 7.30am on Friday.

It’s understood a resident who attempted to intervene was threatened with a gun before being shot at. Thankfully, he wasn’t injured.


Police said the man and woman then left the scene in two vehicles – a white ute and a blue Subaru.

A Highway Patrol unit tried intercepting the cars a short time later but the drivers allegedly failed to stop.

Officers gave chase, pursuing the vehicles to Edmondson Park where police were forced to pull back due to safety reasons.

The white ute smashed into a Suzuki Swift at the intersection of Corfield Road and Camden Valley Way a short time later.

Two men from the ute were arrested and officers allegedly found a loaded gun in the vehicle.

It took emergency services about an hour to free the female driver of the Swift.

She has since been taken to Liverpool Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The blue Subaru was found abandoned in a street at Edmondson Park a short time later. It has been seized for forensic examination.

Police are still trying to locate the woman involved in the original domestic violence incident.
