Police were repeatedly stonewalled as they attempted to investigate shots fired in suburban Horlsey, a jury in the trial of accused gunman Derek Ferguson has heard.
Ferguson's wife was home the morning of November 15 last year, when five shots rang out at her front door.
But she gave little information to police, telling them she had been in the process of packing for an imminent interstate flight for her family.
"We checked in and everything," she said.
Asked whether there had been any threats made towards her or her husband, she replied: "I don't know. I don't have a clue. I'm a very simple person".
Evidence on day two of Ferguson's Wollongong District Court centred around police witnesses and ballistics experts.
Ferguson has pleaded not guilty to two firearms charges, claiming he discharged the weapon because he feared for his safety and that of his family.
Video played to the jury showed two men, Michael Black and Rian Kinloch, coming to his door on November 15 as a third, unidentified person manned a getaway car outside.
The men have a conversation before Black roughly peels open the security screen door, only for he and Kinloch to turn tail when a bare-chested Ferguson chases them off with a silver pistol in hand, allegedly firing five times.
Jurors heard police later placed Ferguson's hands in plastic bags to undergo testing for gunshot residue.
On Wednesday the jury was shown body-worn police camera footage of detectives approaching Black as he was eating a packet of chips on a public sidewalk five days later.

"Were you there?" an officer asks, to which he shrugs and keeps eating chips.
When told police intend to seize his shoes as potential evidence he replies, "they're brand new".
He complies with police, lifting his shirt to show he has no injuries and surrenders his shoes - which were later ruled out as being the ones worn at the house on November 15 - but offers no information.
The trial continues Thursday.
