A man has been arrested after allegedly firing a shotgun into a home in Claymore this morning.

Around 5am police were called to a home at Drysdale Street at Claymore, following reports of shots fired.

Detectives and other officers from Campbelltown City Police Area Command who went to the scene were told a man attended the home and fired a shotgun at the premises.

The two occupants – a man and a woman – were not physically injured during the incident.

Police arrested a 32-year-old man at the scene, who is known to the occupants.

He was taken to Campbelltown Police Station, where he is assisting police with inquiries.

A crime scene has been established and is currently being forensically examined by specialist police.

As inquiries continue, police are urging anyone with information, or dashcam vision from the area, to come forward.


In a separate incident, a man appeared in court yesterday charged with firearm and kidnap offences after a loaded gun was found when police forced entry into a unit near Liverpool on Saturday night.

Emergency services were called to a unit on Bonnyrigg Avenue following reports 34-year-old woman was being held against her will.

Police officers, including members of the Public Order and Riot Squad attended the scene and were met by the woman, who told them she’d managed to escape; however, said a man inside the unit was allegedly armed with a firearm and a knife.

The 34-year-old woman had suffered arm injuries while inside the unit, but did not need medical attention.

A short time later, police forced entry to the unit and arrested a 35-year-old man and two women, aged 42 and 32.

All three were taken to Fairfield Police Station where the man was charged with 11 offences and refused bail to appear in Parramatta Bail Court.

Police allege precursor chemicals and equipment for the manufacture of methylamphetamine were found inside the unit, while a police dog found a loaded firearm nearby.

The two women were released pending further investigation.
