Man to face court for firing shot into car on Christmas Day

A man will face court after a shot was fired into a vehicle containing four people at Cessnock in the Hunter region, on Christmas Day.

Police say that just before 10pm on Sunday a man got out of the ute at a house to speak with a woman living there, and shortly afterwards a man walked out and fired a single round into the car’s window.

No one’s been injured but a 28-year-old Cessnock man’s been refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court today on firearms charges.
