A 25 year old man has been charged over the shooting of another man more than a year ago near Campbelltown.

He was arrested by Campbelltown detectives at a unit on O’Sullivan Rd, Leumeah, as pictured above.

He was taken to Campbelltown Police Station and charged with shooting with intent to murder and discharging a firearm with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The man was refused bail and appeared at Campbelltown Local Court late last week, where he was formally refused bail to reappear at the same court on August 26.

Police say that around 8.50pm on Saturday, May 25 last year, a man presented to Campbelltown Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right shoulder.

Detectives attached to Campbelltown City Police Area Command established Strike Force Veda to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

Following inquiries, officers identified that the incident took place at Malcolm Way, Rosemeadow.

In a separate incident, a man is under police guard in hospital after being arrested following an attempted robbery and car-jacking near Liverpool yesterday.

About 1.30pm a 26-year-old woman was walking to her vehicle in a car park on Parkers Farm Place, Casula, when she was approached by an unknown man.

Police have been told the man attempted to take the woman’s car keys and mobile phone from her hand unsuccessfully, before he ran away.

A short time later, a 57-year-old man was standing next to a Chrysler People Mover in a car park on Orange Grove Road, Liverpool, when the unknown man allegedly entered the driver’s seat.

At the time, three children – aged three and 21-month-old twins – were asleep in the vehicle in their car restraints.

It’s alleged the man reversed the Chrysler into an unattended parked car, before exiting and running away.

The 26-year-old man was detained by members of the public in the car park area before officers from Liverpool City Police Area Command attended.

He was arrested and taken to Liverpool Hospital where he remains under police guard.

Crime scenes have been established which will be examined by specialist forensic officers.
