Reports of gunshot caused by slingshot


At approximately 9pm last night, police were called to an incident at the Broad Water Mariner Resort where information suggested a shot had been fired into the front foyer of reception.

Police blocked Mabel Street off and attended the scene and conducted preliminary inquiries.

Police say it appears as if the damage to the door was not related to firearms and is believed to have been caused by a rock projectile from a sling shot or similar.
