Police have released a facefit image of a person of interest in the investigation of two shootings in Tuggeranong last month.

Shots were fired at cars in Chisholm and Gordon in the early hours of Sunday, February 8.

Police found the first car in Nina Jones Crescent, Chisholm peppered with up to seven shots.

A resident in the street heard a noise about 1.45am but did not go outside to investigate and the owner of the car reported the damage later that morning.

The second shooting was about 3.30am outside a unit complex on Kellick Place, Gordon.

A resident reported hearing possible gunfire and police later discovered bullet holes in a car and in the driveway.

Police earlier said they believed the two shootings were targeted and calculated attacks, with detectives investigating possible links to outlaw motorcycle gangs.

The person of interest for both shootings is described as between 25 to 30 years of age, of a slim and fit build with a shaved head, olive skin and heavily tattooed.

A black Holden Astra hatchback with ACT plates is also of interest in the investigation following a review of CCTV in the Chisholm area.

Last month police sought information about two men and a dark car they believed were linked to the Chisholm shooting.

ACT Policing have urged anyone who can identify the person of interest or may have information about the car to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Information can be provided anonymously.
