NSW Police have arrested and charged a 35yo man from Revesby after he used a gun to protect himself and 3 associates after they were attacked by three masked men who started shooting up his property in Southwest Sydney.

The three other men who were with the 35yo, aged 21,22 and 32 have also been charged.

The victims of the attack were charged after group of armed men stormed their property. It is alleged that the 35-year-old ran inside as the attack started, grabbed a rifle and used it to protect himself and his associates as the armed, masked offenders fled.

The offenders have not been located and police are seeking assistance in finding them. This has not stopped police seeking to charge those who defended themselves.

Those arrested were not arrested at the time of the attack. They were each taken into custody after some police investigations. The 35-year old who fired the weapon to defend his life and property was charged with shooting at a person with the intent to murder, firing a weapon in a public place and other weapons charges. His associates were charged with being accessories after the fact to the shooting. 

At a press conference after the attack, Sydney Police suggested that this was a targeted attack.

Bankstown Detective Chief Inspector Darren Sly said they believe this to be a targeted attack. Police asked for public help in finding the intruders who attacked the arrested man’s property. They have not been found since fleeing the scene. 

At the time of the attack, there were a number of horses at the Revesby property. Thankfully none of the horses was injured during the attack. There is no legal issue with them housing horses on the property.

The arrest of the man who defended his property and his associates raises questions about Australian’s right to defend themselves and their friends and family if they are attacked on their property.
