Investigation continues into Epping shooting

Detectives from the Echo Taskforce have released CCTV as part of their investigation into a shooting in Epping earlier this month.

Police have been told a 47-year-old man was standing in the driveway of a Young Street property talking to two other men just before 7.40pm on Wednesday, 1 July.

It’s believed shots have been fired from a vehicle, believed to be a white BMW coupe, striking the man in the lower body.

The BMW has then left the scene.

Paramedics attended and treated the victim before conveying him to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No one else was injured during the incident.

Detectives from the Echo Taskforce are investigating as the victim has links to the Mongols Outlaw Motor Cycle Gang.

At this stage, detectives are still working to determine the motive for the shooting and who is responsible.

Detectives have today released footage of the BMW driving past the Epping address, in which a number of gunshots can be heard.

An image of a white BMW similar to that used in the shooting has also been released.

Police would like to speak to anyone who recognises the white BMW or saw it in the Epping area on 1 July.
