A young man has been critically injured and rushed to hospital after he was pulled from a vehicle and shot on Friday night in western Sydney, NSW Police said.
Emergency services arrived at Anderson Lane in Sefton around 11.45pm to find a 19-year-old man suffering multiple gunshot wounds to his chest and leg.
Police said the teen was treated at the scene before being taken to Westmead Hospital in a critical condition.
Early investigations suggest the 19-year-old was in the driver’s seat of the car with passenger, a 21-year-old male, at the time of the shooting.
Police said the 21-year-old suffered a minor injury to his eye due to the smashed glass, but did not require treatment and he is assisting police with their investigation.
Police said a number of men approached the vehicle, smashing the window on the passenger side, dragging the driver from the car and shooting him.
Soon after, a white hatchback was seen leaving the area.
Police are hoping to speak with the driver of the hatchback, or anyone who may have information which could assist the investigation.
Anyone who may have been around Anderson Lane, Helen Street, Wellington Road or Sefton Railway Station around 11.45pm on Friday night should contact police at Bankstown Police Station.
