A man has been kneecapped in a shooting in Auburn police say.
A 30-year-old man took himself to Auburn Hospital about 10pm yesterday suffering a gunshot wound to his right knee, police said.
Police went to the hospital to interview the man, but said he would not co-operate.
Flemington duty officer, Inspector Jason Inkster, said there did not appear to be a link to last week's shooting in Auburn.
A 16 year-old boy was the victim of a targeted shooting on Auburn Road last Tuesday and it was understood his father was shot in his car in Auburn over a fortnight ago.
"It's really too early to make a clear link. We're treating them on their own.
"At this stage there's nothing to suggest that there is [a link]."
Investigators were not sure where the scene of the shooting was, and police searched the Auburn area for evidence.
Inspector Inkster said the man was unable to talk to police because he was having medical treatment.
The victim was transferred to Westmead Hospital for surgery and was in a stable condition this morning.
Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000.
