A second man has been charged over an incident in Kendenup that saw an alleged shooting at 8am on Monday morning in what is believed to be a home burglary gone wrong. On Wednesday morning, a man in his late 20s was charged with home burglary, stealing, and damage. Earlier in the week on Monday evening, a 37-year-old was arrested for discharging a firearm in a manner to cause fear to the public or any person and unlawfully discharged a firearm shooting across the road. Police will allege the man was defending his property from an attempted burglary when he initially lawfully discharged his .223 rifle in self defence. The man is accused of then shooting at their White Ford Courier utility vehicle as the alleged burglars fled, at which point he unlawfully discharged his firearm. Multiple shots were fired after a firearm was allegedly discharged causing damage to a car. Police were called to the property within the Kendenup townsite, near Second Avenue, about 8am after reports of gunshots. Albany Detective Senior Sergeant Drew Reeder said the parties were known to each other and further enquiries into the alleged burglars were ongoing. The 37-year-old man was released from custody on protective bail conditions and is due to appear in Albany Magistrates Court on February 1. Police have charged a man in his late 20s has been charged with home burglary, stealing, and damage, and are continuing to investigate the incident. One woman, who doesn’t want to be named, said she thought she originally heard cries for help but put it down to crows. She later heard a loud bang but thought it was a car backfiring. “I didn’t call the police because I thought it was a car backfiring, we didn’t know that’s what had happened,” she said. “I still don’t even know if that was someone calling out for help, not a lot of time passed between the two incidents but more than I would have thought if it was connected.” Residents from about 500 metres away also heard the loud bangs. “There was a few seconds between each one, I thought they were shots but then we didn’t hear anything else, no sirens or anything so we didn’t take much notice,” Roy Boyer said. “Roy came in and said I just heard four gunshots, I’m pretty sure it’s gunshots,” his wife Bev Boyer added. “It was terrifying to hear.” Police say there is no ongoing threat to public safety.
