Recent public shootings may be linked to turf war
A SWIMMING pool car park and a kebab shop were turned into crime scenes in a series of public shootings in Sydney on Thursday night.
A couple were waiting outside a pool at Wentworthville when their car was showered with bullets about 9.30pm.
One of the bullets hit the driver's door and struck a man, aged in his 30s, in the leg.
He ran for help and was treated for minor injuries.
In Smithfield, a 41-year-old man was shot after being assaulted by a group of men outside a kebab shop.
He was in a stable condition at Auburn hospital on Friday night.
