Police responded to reports of the gunshots on Alexandra Street at approximately 5:30 AM. Responding officers interviewed persons living in the area, who confirmed they heard what sounded like gunshots. Members from the Major Crime and Ident Units were called in to assist Patrol officers. As a result of their investigation, police located a truck (in another area of Sydney) which they believed was involved in this incident. Inside the truck, officers located and seized a fully automatic firearm.
That afternoon, officers arrested a male suspect who was later charged and released on a Promise to Appear in Sydney Provincial Court on January 30, 2012.
There were no injuries or damage to property as a result of this incident.
