Father and son critical after shooting in Sydney

A father and son have been critically injured after a shooting in inner-Sydney overnight.

One man was shot in the head, while the other suffered gunshot wounds to the back.

Both are in a critical but stable condition in hospital.

Local detectives and specialist officers from Operation Talon have been called in to investigate.

Acting Inspector John Maricic says both victims are known to police, and at this stage they are treating it as a targeted shooting.
