A trail of blood; two men wounded, one se­ri­ously; three sus­pects sought.

Po­lice say it was a tar­geted at­tack that brought three men into a west Lon­don home with weapons, leav­ing one with a gun­shot wound and an­other with in­juries from a fight.

What’s not known yet is who fired the gun Wed­nes­day night in the shoot­ing at a house along Spring­bank Drive.

Thurs­day, as they worked the taped-off ad­dress, Lon­don po­lice said they need more wit­nesses to come for­ward in what they called “a very ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion” into what hap­pened Wed­nes­day be­fore they and paramedics ar­rived at the scene about 10:15 p.m.

“We’re look­ing for wit­nesses to come for­ward to pro­vide ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion to us in or­der for us to iden­tify these in­di­vid­u­als and make some ar­rests,” said Const. San­dasha Bough.

Peo­ple in the neigh­bour­hood said at least two men moved into the house last spring. One neigh­bour said a lot of peo­ple came and went from the house at all hours of the day, un­usual for the oth­er­wise quiet area.

“It’s a re­ally nice neigh­bour­hood,” said Shari John­son, who lives around the cor­ner from the home near Sea­wood Av­enue. “We all no­ticed when they moved in.”

At about 10:15 p.m., po­lice and paramedics were called to the house where they found one man with a gun­shot wound and an­other with in­juries from a fight. The three sus­pects are de­scribed as: • A black man, about six-foot-five, with a thin build, who wore a black toque, black cloth­ing and a yel­low jacket.

• A white man in his 20s, with a slim build, about five-foot-five. He wore a black jacket with a hood.

• An Indige­nous man in his 20s, medium build, about five-foot-eight, who wore a black face mask.
