Police release identity of man wanted over alleged shooting of Big Brother contestant

Police have released the identity of a man they are hunting over the alleged shooting of Big Brother contestant Sam Wallace earlier this month.

Around 3:40pm on December 6, a car was stationary in the carpark of Mike’s Kitchen on Gooding Drive in Merrimac when a second car stopped in the carpark.

A man has got out of the second car and approached the other vehicle before firing several shots into the car. He then got back into the car and drove off.


Mr Wallace, 24, who was sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle received non-life threatening leg injuries.
