GLENORCHY police investigating a string of shootings in the Gagebrook and Bridgewater areas in recent weeks have revealed yet another drive-by attack was carried out three days ago.

The same branch that attracted heavy criticism from residents last month for failing to warn the public of an escalating turf war between gun-wielding offenders, which saw half a dozen residential drive-bys carried out before a man was shot on a public highway.

Police only then admitted they were investigating a string of firearm attacks when the Mercury was tipped off to the situation.

When approached by the Mercury this afternoon for a response to rumours of a new drive-by shooting at Gagebrook on Friday night, police issued a statement confirming a gun was fired through the window of a home in Aloomba Place at 10.46pm on Friday.

"The projectile, believed to be a small calibre, has gone through the front lounge room window and caused damage to the ceiling," the statement read.

"No persons were injured as a result of the firearm being discharged."

Police say this is not believed to be related to the previous attacks however they are yet to identify the person or people responsible and are now appealing for witnesses.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Glenorchy CIB on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
