Police are investigating how three businesses and a car in Enterprise Avenue, South Tweed Heads came to be riddled with bullet holes on Sunday night.

No-one was injured in the shooting and no-one reported hearing it. Indeed it appears the light industrial area was deserted at the time, making the police’s job harder. But they say the people who did it had no way of knowing there was no-one in the vicinity.

Police have said it was a relief that no-one was injured, however, and are continuing to look for the culprit. They are concerned a semi-automatic weapon may have been used.

A number of objects found at the scene have been sent to ballistics experts for identification.
