Detectives are investigating and anyone with information is asked to contact police
On Tuesday afternoon NSW police told media the act was ‘reckless’ but not ‘a targeted attack’.
‘This was not a targeted act towards a school,’ Superintendent Grant Healy said.
‘It’s a totally reckless act for someone who is acting in a way with a firearm that is very dangerous to the community.
‘A reckless act is when you are playing with something and you don’t think about the consequences.’
He said indications are the bullet was fired from ‘some distance away’ and a police ballistics team is trying to establish what it was fired from.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact police.
