A SUPPOSED drive-by shooting at Bakery Hill on Monday night has instead been revealed as just a harmless litterer.
Ballarat police yesterday shot down reports of the shooting, and revealed it was instead someone throwing an object out of their car window as they passed by McDonald's Bakery Hill.
Several people contacted The Courier asking why the shooting hadn't been reported either in the paper or on the website.
But we can reveal it was nothing too untoward.
"It's certainly nothing newsworthy," police said.
