Sam Ibrahim home shot at - report
April 20, 2012
TWO more shootings have taken place in Sydney's northwest overnight, one of which reportedly targeted a house rented by alleged former bikie boss Sam Ibrahim.
The attacks occurred in two northwest suburbs - the first at a house in Rouse Hill around midnight before another at a Bella Vista home 20 minutes later, police say.
The ABC reports eight shots were fired into the Bella Vista house, which is rented by Sam Ibrahim, the alleged former Nomad bikie boss and eldest Ibrahim brother.
Three people were in the house at the time but no one was hurt.
Police had earlier been called to a Greensborough Ave house in Rouse Hill following reports of shots being fired.
They located a number of bullet casings outside as well as bullet holes in the dwelling. None of the occupants were injured.
Police said the Rouse Hill home had previously been owned by a person with bikie links, but the new tenants were not known to police.
"It's believed it may either be a case of mistaken identity or maybe someone was looking for somebody else," Inspector David Hogg told Macquarie Radio.
Crime scenes have been established at both sites for forensic specialists.
A total of 52 shootings have occurred in Sydney this year and 21 this month.
