Midvale: detectives still investigating after car shot at on Hooley Rd

MIDLAND Detectives are continuing inquiries after a shooting in Midvale yesterday just after 6pm.

About 6.05pm, a 43-year-old woman was reversing her white Toyota vehicle out of a Hooley Road property when bullets, believed to be a shotgun round, struck her vehicle.

The rounds hit the driver’s door causing the glass to shower over the woman and three passengers in the vehicle.

The woman was struck in the shoulder by the pellets.

Her injuries were not life threatening and she was taken to hospital in Midland by St John Ambulance.

The woman’s daughter posted on Facebook and said her mum had suffered flesh wounds in the incident.

“She will be fine hopefully, she was in pain obviously but nothing she won’t recover from,” she said.

“All I have to say is thank God my mum is one tough cookie.”

Her daughter said the person who fired the shots had inadvertently injured one of the hardest working, innocent and kind caring women she has ever known.

“On a positive note, Mum is home, in a lot of pain and will be for a while.

“She just has to miss two or maybe more days if she needs it from work.”

Detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and urge anyone with any information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au
