A man has been arrested and charged following the shooting of a woman at Terrigal earlier this week.
Shortly before 11.30pm on Wednesday (4 November 2015), police were contacted by medical staff after a 31-year-old woman arrived at Gosford Hospital with a gunshot wound to her right thigh. Police from the Brisbane Water Local Area Command commenced inquiries into the matter, with initial investigations indicating the woman was shot by a man at a property on Hillcrest Street, Terrigal, earlier in the evening.
Yesterday afternoon (Friday 6 November 2015), police visited a property on Lisbon Way, Wyoming. After speaking to the occupants of the home, officers searched the property and located two shortened shot-guns, a .22 calibre rifle and ammunition. A short time later, around 4.40pm, police attended a home on Roselands Avenue, Wyoming. There they arrested a 48-year-old man, and seized a revolver.
The man was taken to Gosford Police Station where he was charged with reckless wounding and numerous firearm offences. Bail refused, he is scheduled to appear before Gosford Local Court today (Saturday 7 November 2015).
The injured woman underwent surgery earlier this week. She remains in hospital in a stable condition.
