Investigators say a single shot was fired into a Wilson Street property on Friday night (March 17, 2017) into the front lounge room window.

Detective Mick Palmer believes it was a targeted attack.

"The occupier of the premises, although not home at the time, has been spoken to by police and he is reluctant to assist us in any enquiries so far."

The scene was secured and guarded up overnight and Police Ballistic Officers attended on Saturday and examined the scene.

Detective Palmer says they're not sure if a grey ford sedan was involved in the incident or just maybe in the area at the time.

"We are certainly are appealing for the driver, that was seen in the area to contact us, and they may be able to assist us with our enquiries."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or the Colac Police Station on 5230 0000
