Police are appealing for information after a man was shot during an aggravated burglary in Tarneit almost two weeks ago.

A 33-year-old man suffered minor injuries when he was grazed by a bullet during the incident along Nottingham Crescent at around 10.30pm on Saturday, February 17.

Investigators have been told two men forced their way into the property, confronting the victim before a number of shots were fired.

A bullet grazed the victims stomach and the men left the home by ‘unknown means.’

Police believe the attack was targeted but are still investigating the exact circumstances surrounding the incident, with both men still not found.

Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who may have CCTV or dash-cam footage from the area on the night, or who may know more about the incident.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
