Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was shot in the leg at Mayfield West this morning.
Emergency services were called to a unit block in Buruda Street just before 5.30am to reports of a shot being fired.
They found a 25-year-old with a gunshot wound to his left thigh - he's been taken to the John Hunter Hospital in a stable condition.
Detectives hope to speak to him when he's well enough.
In the meantime, anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
