No reason for cop to shoot

The W.A. cops are notorious goons

SENIOR WA police say there was no obvious reason for a male officer to fire a gun at two women during a traffic stop in Nollamara yesterday. Police said preliminary inquiries have failed to find a justifiable reason for the officer to have fired a weapon during the traffic stop.

Meanwhile the hunt continues for the women at the centre of the police shooting on Flinders Street, Nollamara yesterday afternoon. Aboriginal Legal Service chief Dennis Eggington has urged the two women to come forward to the ALS and tell their side of the story.

WA Police have launched an internal investigation into the actions of the male officer who reportedly opened fire on the two women in a vehicle in Flinders Street. The officer, who was believed to be travelling with two female officers, fired shots at the car at about 1.30pm. It is not yet known if the occupants were injured as they sped away from the scene.

Flinders Street was closed shortly after the shooting and a crime scene has been established at the corner of Quadea Road and Flinders Street. A search is now underway to find the driver and passenger of the vehicle.

Inspector Bill Munnee said he did not know why the officer fired his gun. "I will tell you a full and thorough investigation will be conducted by the Internal Affairs Unit to determine whether the discharge of the firearm was lawful," Insp Munnee said.

The three officers involved in the incident have had their guns seized and are being questioned seperately by internal affairs.

Police believe they know who the two women are but have not been able to locate them. They have spent the afternoon searching addresses linked to the car registration and checking nearby hospitals. The car the women were travelling in has been described as a dark-coloured Holden sedan.
