Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

A man has been shot while stand­ing in the drive­way of his own home at St Clair on Mon­day night. Po­lice were called to Shad­low Cres, about 8.30pm, af­ter a 49-yearold man was shot in the leg. He was taken to hos­pi­tal for emer­gency treat­ment and re­mains in a sta­ble con­di­tion. A crime scene was set up and St Marys de­tec­tives are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing. It is not clear who the shooter was, or if he knew the in­jured man. St Marys crime man­ager De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Barry Vin­cent said while it was early in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the shoot­ing was not be­lieved to be linked to last week’s kid­nap­ping of a man in the same sub­urb.
