Detectives are renewing an appeal for assistance as they continue to investigate a shooting that left a woman seriously injured in Sydney’s south-west last month.
Just before 1am on Thursday 12 January 2023, a 37-year-old woman arrived at the emergency department of Bankstown Hospital suffering a gunshot wound to her torso.
Officers from Bankstown Police Area Command attended and were told the woman had been driven to the hospital by a man; however, he left the area on foot prior to police arrival.
The vehicle, a white Mercedes Benz sedan, was left outside the emergency department.
Following inquiries, detectives attended a home on Simmat Avenue at Condell Park, where it’s alleged the shooting took place.
A crime scene was established at the home, and, during a forensic examination, detectives located a number of bullet holes and casings.
Strike Force Chelston was formed to investigate the shooting, with local detectives being assisted by the State Crime Command’s Robbery & Serious Crime Squad.
As inquiries continue, police are appealing for assistance to locate the man who took the injured woman to hospital.
He is described as being of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance, about 175cm tall, with a medium build, and a dark beard. At the time he was wearing a black hoodie, black shorts over full-length black training tights.
The woman remains in hospital with significant injuries, including a suspected severed spine, as well as damage to her internal organs.
