Sex club shooting

Police have ruled out a "gay hate" motive after a man was shot in the car park of a gay and swingers sex club.

Police were called to the car park of Aarows, a 24-hour "gay and social club" based in Rydalmere, just before 1am on Wednesday following reports of the multiple shooting of a 52-year-old man, who was injured in the back, legs and groin.

Granville's crime manager, Inspector Glen Parks told Fairfax Media two men were waiting for the victim, who was not known to police.

''There is nothing to suggest this is a gay hate crime,'' he said.

Mr Parks said the attackers had their faces covered and ambushed the man when he was leaving the club.
