A home has been targeted for the second time in five months after at least five shots were fired in Sydney’s south-west overnight.

It has sparked renewed fears of gang violence in the area as gunfire rang out just before 10pm, with bullets hitting a house and parked car in Leppington.

A white van was seen driving away.

Three people, including two men and a woman, were inside the home at the time.

Neighbours have been left shocked as the suburban street is home to families and there is a preschool on the corner.

“Being in a neighbourhood with two kids and these things happen it’s literally terrifying,” a resident told 9News.

“Bit scared because it’s a bit unnerving that it has happened twice to the same house in such a short time,” another resident said.

It’s the fourth public place shooting in the city’s south-west in three weeks.
