A 20-year-old man was arrested at Raymond Terrace Police Station about 4.40pm on May 18 and charged with fire firearm at dwelling house with disregard for public safety.

Police said the bullet allegedly penetrated the front door before lodging into the wall.
Following his arrest, the 20-year-old man was granted strict conditional bail and will appear in Raymond Terrace Local Court on June 15.
