Father and son critical after shooting in Sydney

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

Police say a 49-year-old man and his 23-year-old son were shot in Jones Street in Pyrmont, shortly before 11pm.

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.
