Shooting in Adelaide's north leaves victim in hospital with leg injury as police hunt trio

A man has been shot during a home invasion in Adelaide's north, with police now searching for the men who broke into the property. 

The 59-year-old victim from Elizabeth Vale was shot in the leg and was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Police said three men forced their way into the victim's house on Willow Crescent, where police were called just after 7am.

The trio demanded, and then left with, cash.

The victim's injuries are non-life-threatening, police said.

Shane Bly, who said he had arrived at the scene expecting to meet his friend, was "distraught" and "horrified" to discover what had occurred.

"All I know is there's been an incident with my friend, he's in hospital," he said.

"I rocked up to go and visit him, I see him on the weekends, he's my mate.

"He's a good man, he really is, he'd do anything for anyone. He doesn't deserve this."

Neighbour Kirsty Palmer said her daughter was awoken by the sounds of banging on the door.

"My daughter actually heard banging at the door and we heard a car speed off but that's about all we heard, other than that we had no idea anything was going down," she said.

"To know that someone's breaking into someone's house and shooting ... it's a bit scary.

"They could have come to my door and shot me or my daughter."

A poster featuring different types of handguns was located inside the home behind the door of the property.

Investigations are ongoing and police have asked anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or online.

"While a link between the victim and the suspects is undetermined at this time, it is believed to be a targeted incident," police said.
