A man, 41, was fighting for his life last night after he was shot in the head in Sha Tin.

The victim was playing cards with his friends in a park at Kwong Yuen Estate, when a man in his 30s, wearing a black T-shirt and carrying an umbrella, approached him and shot him at close range with a pistol before fleeing. Police cordoned off and searched the estate but failed to find the suspect. The victim was taken to Prince of Wales Hospital in critical condition.
