About 1.15am on Mondaypolice were called to a home on Conder Crescent, Metford, following reports of shots fired.
Officers from Central Hunter Local Area Commandwere told a car haddriven past the location and shots had been fired at a home.
No one was injured during the incident.
Fairfax Media understands the shots struck the back of a car that was parked in the driveway.
NSW Police said initial investigations indicated the incident was related to an outlaw motorcycle gang (OMCG).
Detective Superintendent Craig Jackson, Commander of Central Hunter, saidpolice wouldcontinue to target those involved in criminal activity, including outlaw motorcycle gangs.
“Outlaw motorcycle gangs are groups that have no respect for the law, the communities they live in or society in general and our command, with the ongoing support from specialist units will continue to detect and disrupt any of their activities,” he said.
“If you have any information concerning the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs, please contact police via crime stoppers.
“You can provide information anonymously and will be treated in the strictest confidence.”
A Conder Crescent resident, who asked not to be named, said the sound of the gunshot woke her in the early hours of Monday morning.
But she said she dismissed the thought that it could have been the sound of a gun firing and she went back to sleep.
“I looked at my phone, check out the window and couldn’t see anything,” she said.
“I’m hoping it’s a one-off. It doesn’t comfort you, knowing something like that can come by.”
The resident said Conder Crescent was usually quiet and safe –there were often children riding their bikes around the neighborhood.
