Man shot, shooter on the loose

POLICE officers have surrounded a house in Adelaide's northern suburbs and are negotiating with a person to come out after a man was shot in the leg.

Authorities were called to Sheringa Crescent, Salisbury Park, just after 12.30pm on Tuesday amid reports of a shooting.

A man, whose details have not been released, was found with a gunshot wound to the lower leg.

He is being being treated by paramedics, but police say his injury is not believed to be life-threatening.

A manhunt was been launched involving patrols and members of the elite STAR Group tactical division. The surrounding area has been cordoned off.

Officers have surrounded a home on Sheringa Crescent and are using a megaphone to ask someone inside the house to come outside.

"Come outside with nothing in your hands and you won't be harmed. The house is surrounded," they are saying.

Members of the public are asked to stay away from the area and remain inside their homes, a police spokeswoman said.

The shooting took place near a primary school and officials are checking to see if it is in lockdown.

Neighbours said they had been told to stay inside by police.

"They said it was a dangerous situation and we were stay inside," said one resident.

They said they saw numerous police and STAR Officers in their street, including some in the armoured BearCat used by the STAR Group.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at
