Shots fired in Licola

POLICE are hunting for the occupants of a charcoal coloured Toyota four wheel drive who fired shots near a residential property at Licola about 3pm on Friday.

Nobody was injured and no property damaged but empty bullet casing were found on the road.

Police don’t believe the shooters saw the residence or knew people were inside.

After a number of recent reports of spotlighting and other hunting offenses in the area, Heyfield police will be ramping up patrols to prevent people using firearms on private property.

Anyone with information about these or other incidents is urged to phone Heyfield police on 5148 2202.
