Banora family caught up in shooting want answers
A BANORA Point family whose home was sprayed with bullets on Monday is "shattered" and looking for answers, according to Tweed Police Superintendent Stuart Wilkins.
Police say the drive-by shooting of a home on Anthony Ave and car at Laura St, Banora Point, about 3.25am was directed at a man known to the gunmen.
"We believe it is a group of men known to each other who have had an ongoing conflict, but certainly that has escalated the conflict," Supt Wilkins said.
"(The family are) shattered, they're upset and they're looking for the police to give them some direction and we're helping them as we speak.
"The people at the house targeted are unknown to police, but an associate of the people, we believe, was the intended target."
Tweed's top cop also talked of a confrontation between the intended victim and his attackers, with the man targeted believed to have brazenly lobbed a bottle at his gun-wielding attackers.
"There was a confrontation between the vehicle responsible for the drive-by shooting and who we believe was the intended victim," he said.
"A confrontation took place, there was a shot at a motor vehicle and then those offenders responsible for the drive-by took off in the white sedan."
Police are looking for information regarding a white Toyota Camry or Corolla, allegedly used in the drive-by.
They are also looking for a white ute seen during the attack, or any other information which could help their investigation.
