Shots have been fired in a terrifying and targeted home invasion in Melbourne’s northeast, with a woman and two children inside the property at the time.
Police say several men broke into the Linton Ave home in Templestowe Lower about 12.45am on Thursday, firing several shots inside the property.
While no one was struck by the shots, a male occupant required treatment in hospital for non-life threatening injuries sustained during the break-in.
The woman and children, one of whom is believed to be a baby, were not injured and were seen getting into a car and leaving the property later on Thursday morning.
After firing the shots, the intruders fled the scene.
Police have confirmed that no arrests have been made at this stage.
“At this early stage in the investigation, detectives are still determining the motive however believe the incident was targeted,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, has CCTV footage or further information has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
