Joondalup Times - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a 50-year-old man was shot in the chest dur­ing an in­ci­dent in the lounge room of a Bel­don home last Thurs­day.

It is un­der­stood the man who lives at the Lock­eville Close res­i­dence suf­fered a non-fa­tal gun­shot wound.

Po­lice taped off the house and de­tec­tives and crime scene unit of­fi­cers ex­am­ined the scene.

Act­ing In­spec­tor Ea­mon Flana­gan said the shooter was known to the vic­tim.

“We have sev­eral lines of in­quiry... we’ve got sev­eral solid lines of in­quiry as to who the per­son in­volved is,” he said.

“It ap­pears to be an iso­lated in­ci­dent within the ad­dress. Any in­ci­dent in­volv­ing firearms is treated very se­ri­ously.”

Act­ing In­spec­tor Flana­gan said last week the vic­tim was re­ceiv­ing treat­ment in RPH.
