Charges Laid After Shooting Incident Inside A Risdon Vale Home
Firearms amnesty anyone?
Detectives from Bellerive CIB have charged a Risdon Vale man following reports of a shooting incident on the state's Eastern Shore.
The 24-year-old was taken into custody on Wednesday around 1:30 after police responded to a call-out of shots fired inside a Waratah Road home.
No-one was injured during the incident, and it is alleged the people involved knew each other.
The man appeared in Hobart Magistrates Court on Thursday.
Police are asking for anyone with information to contact police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000
It also comes as a timely reminder of Tasmania's permanent firearms amnesty. Further information is available here: https://fas.police.tas.gov.au/amnesty-surrender-firearms
