Bullet fired through Bedford gym window in ‘random attack’

Police are trying to track down a “suspicious” white van seen in the late hours of Friday evening near a Bedford gym, where a bullet hole was discovered in one of its windows.

Mirrabooka Detectives and forensics were called to examine the window at 12RND Fitness, on the corner of Beaufort Street and Shaftesbury Avenue, at 7am on Saturday morning.

'Suspicious' white van captured on CCTV near 12RND Fitness gym in Bedford.

‘Suspicious’ white van captured on CCTV near 12RND Fitness gym in Bedford.

The gym is reportedly owned by 43-year-old mother-of-one Mel Dragon, with The West Australian reporting that she was due to reopen her doors on Monday after the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

A police spokesman confirmed that it did appear to be a random attack.

“[It’s just] a normal gym, nothing out of the ordinary; nothing to indicate why they would target that particular place,” he said.

Detectives believe the shot was fired at 11.10pm on May 22 and are asking anyone with information about the white van, which was captured on another local business’s CCTV circling the area at the time, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.
