UPDATED: A 48-year-old man has died after being shot at his home in Phillip on Thursday night.

Officers were called to the scene on Mansfield Place at around 11:45pm where they found the person who was suffering life-threatening injuries.

The man was assessed at the scene before being taken to hospital where he later died.

Police are now investigating the matter with a crime scene established.

Detective Inspector Marcus Boorman said the shooter remains on the run and motivation is still unclear.
