On Monday police were called to the Barrett Elton Real Estate, on the corner of Hardwick Crescent and Luke Street, Kippax, in relation to damage to the front window.
An internal casing of a shotgun cartridge was located nearby and an examination by AFP Forensics has since confirmed the window damage was caused by a shotgun blast. ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations have canvassed local businesses for CCTV and witnesses.
