There were two alleged drive-by shootings of homes in western Sydney on Tuesday, with a man charged over one of the incidents.

Three children were inside one of the homes when it was allegedly fired at.

But there were no injuries from either shooting, a NSW Police spokesperson said.

About 7.30pm shots were fired at a Aubrey Street home in South Granville from a vehicle while two men were inside, police will allege.

About 9.50pm shots were fired at a Kirk Avenue home in Guildford while a man, a woman and three children were inside, police will allege.

Both homes were damaged, a NSW Police spokesperson said.

A 27-year-old man has been charged with shoot with intent to cause grievous bodily harm: accessory after the fact in relation to the first alleged shooting at South Granville.

He was arrested after being involved in a crash at Guildford between a Mitsubishi Pajero and a white 4WD, police will allege.

Shortly before the crash, witnesses allegedly saw several men getting into a silver Mitsubishi Pajero after setting a blue Audi on fire in Granville.

The burnt-out car matched the description of one seen fleeing the scene of the first shooting, police will allege.

A separate car — a white Audi 4WD — that matched the description of one seen leaving the scene of the second shooting was also found burned out by police in Chester Hill, it will be alleged.

“Police believe these incidents are linked and inquiries are continuing,” the spokesperson said.

“Members of the public who may have been in the area are urged to come forward with dashcam footage or to call Granville police station.”

Police also believe Tuesday night’s events could be linked to a previous shooting on Kirk Street at South Granville on Christmas Eve.

The 27-year-old man was also charged with common assault and traffic offences.

He was refused bail on Tuesday night to appear in Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
