By Riverine Herald

Police are investigating after a shot was fired at a vehicle south of Deniliquin.

About 9.30am today (Tuesday 8 January 2019), a Holden Commodore was travelling north on the Cobb Highway, north of Mathoura, when a shot was fired from a small grey coloured hatchback, as it was overtaking the Commodore.

The shot pierced the Commodore’s rear-passenger door.

The Commodore then fled and the incident was reported to police from Murray River Police District.

The damaged vehicle was seized and inquiries continue.

Police are appealing for anyone who was travelling along the Cobb Highway between Echuca and Deniliquin, between 8.30am and 10.30am, and who may have dash cam footage that could assist the investigation, to come forward.
