Man charged following South Grafton shooting

A man has been extradited to NSW and charged following a shooting which occurred in South Grafton last month.

Around 9pm on July 10, emergency services attended a Camelia Way residence where a 15-year-old male was treated for a gunshot wound to his torso and his 45-year-old father was assaulted.

Officers from the Coffs/Clarence Police District commenced an investigation into the incident and appealed for public assistance.

Following extensive enquiries, a 30-year-old man was located and arrested at a park on Park Vista Circuit north of the Gold Coast around 2pm on July 27 by officers from the Coomera Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB), by virtue of an outstanding NSW arrest warrant.

He was taken to Southport Watchhouse as detectives from the Coffs/Clarence Police District travelled to Queensland where they applied for and were granted the 30-year-old’s extradition to NSW.

On July 28 he was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station and charged with shoot at with intent to murder and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

He was refused bail and appeared at Tweed Heads Local Court on July 29.

The 15-year-old and 45-year-old have since recovered from their injuries.
