MT DRUITT A man has been gunned down at point blank range in Mt Druitt on Mon­day night. The man was shot twice in the stom­ach as he walked on Der­went St about 9.15pm last night. A NSW Po­lice me­dia spokes­woman said it ap­peared the 34-year-old had been at­tacked on the street and not on a prop­erty. “A male re­ceived a num­ber of gun­shot wounds. He was found on the street or in the gut­ter, it wasn’t in a house,” she said. Paramedics rushed the man to West­mead Hospi­tal where he un­der­went emer­gency surgery. His con­di­tion was listed as se­ri­ous. The street was shut down as de­tec­tives can­vassed the neigh­bour­hood for pos­si­ble wit­nesses. They have urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact them. The vic­tim’s name has not been re­leased.
