Police search for weapon used in fatal shooting

POLICE have seized ammunition but are still searching for the weapon that inflicted the gunshot wound which killed a Coffs Coast man yesterday.

Acting Coffs Clarence Crime Manager Senior Sergeant Peter O'Reilly said at this stage police were unsure of what type of gun was used in the shooting that took place at Dundurrabin, located near Dorrigo.

Police have also seized three cars as part of their investigations.

 

The bizarre incident saw police flagged down by a woman driving a ute around 2.30pm yesterday, where they discovered the deceased man in the back of the vehicle.

He had been shot in the torso.

The 37-year-old female driver was arrested but was released late last night.

Police are currently interviewing witnesses and are urging anyone with information to come forward.

Police have established a crime scene at an Armidale Rd property at Dundarrabin, west of Dorrigo, that's linked to the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old man.
