Man in hospital after Hertfordshire shooting
A man was in hospital with "life-changing" injuries today after he was shot by three men in a house.
Hertfordshire Police said a group of three or four men wearing black balaclavas entered a house in Rueley Dell Road in Lilley, Herts, just before 3pm yesterday.
They shot the 43-year-old occupant in what was described as a "targeted attack", before leaving the house.
Police said the gang were seen getting into a silver car in East Street, the main road through the village. It then drove off in the direction of Hexton.
The victim was taken to a hospital in London where he is being treated. His injuries were described as "life-changing".
Hertfordshire Police could not confirm whether the man was in his own home when he was shot.
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Sean O'Neil from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "We believe this was a targeted attack and not a random shooting and we are appealing to anyone who has any information to contact us as soon as possible."
Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 01707 355798.
