Sport scientist at centre of Essendon scandal shot at

STEPHEN Dank, the sports scientist at the centre of the Essendon doping scandal, has told of being shot at through the window of his house while he slept in the early hours of the morning.

ABC News Radio contacted Dank, who said he was advised by police not to do a formal interview to avoid hampering their investigations.

Dank, 52, was asleep on the sofa when he was woken by gunshots, with a bullet fragment skimming his forehead, leaving a graze injury.

Victoria Police said six shots were fired at the front of the house around 2:30am. Another person home at the time was not hurt.

Dank has been shaken by the incident but is now back at home after being released from hospital.
