SA Police says a drive-by shooting on the outskirts of Adelaide’s CBD was targeted and linked to a car fire in the city’s west.

Officers were called to an underground car park on Greenhill Road at Wayville just after 8am following reports a person driving past in a dark-coloured sedan shot at man and a woman.

The car sped away from the site, which houses several businesses, including Scouts SA, Helping Heroes, Exurbia and Community Assist. 

No-one was injured in the shooting.

Then, just before 10am, firefighters were called to Selby Street at Kurralta Park to extinguish a blaze that had gutted a car.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Duance said while the shooting was targeted, the person believed to be involved was unknown to the victims.

He said the vehicle belonging to the victims had been towed away to be forensically examined for projectiles. 

“It wasn’t a random-type incident, so I want to assure the public that there’s no community safety issues. It’s clearly targeted,” he said.

“The status of the vehicle is uncertain at this time. We’re making enquiries in relation to who had possession of that vehicle.

“There’s peak-hour traffic, there’s a school nearby, and there’s other businesses opening for business at that time and potentially customers, people walking, exercising.”

An office worker nearby told ABC News he heard two gunshots and a woman screaming.

He said when he came outside, he saw a driver in another car had stopped and was consoling the woman.

Chief Inspector Duance said there were “absolutely no known links” to an arson attack at North Adelaide that damaged a Greek restaurant on O’Connell Street in the early hours of Monday morning.

Police said witnesses reported hearing smashing glass and seeing two hooded figures leaving the scene in a silver hatchback, heading east on Ward Street.

“The matter of who is responsible for that fire, and whether they’re linked to any motorcycle gangs, is uncertain at this time,” Chief Inspector Duance said.

“We can’t discount that, but I can’t confirm that either.”
