Shot fired during brawl in Sydney’s west

Four men face charges after a shot was fired during a brawl in Sydney’s west on Tuesday afternoon.

Two groups of men started arguing at a club in Rifle Range Road, Bligh Park in Windsor at 3:15PM and were kicked out by security guards.

Shortly after 4:00PM one of the groups was travelling south in Mileham Street in a car when they noticed the other group of men walking along the street.

The car stopped and the men confronted the group and began to argue again.

It is alleged a 21-year-old man from the car produced a 22 calibre rifle and discharged one round towards the men, narrowly missing them.

Both groups of men became involved in a physical altercation and dispersed quickly as police arrived.

Four men were arrested at the scene and taken to Windsor Police Station. A firearm was located at the scene and was seized and will be forensically examined.

A 21-year-old man has been charged with discharge firearm with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, two counts to use firearm to threaten, possess prohibited firearm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault.

He was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court on Wednesday.

The other men aged 21, 22 and 28, have been charged with assault and affray.

They have been granted conditional bail to appear in Penrith Local Court on 18 May 2017.

Inquiries are continuing.
