US soldier shot at own homecoming party

A US soldier who served in Afghanistan is in a critical condition after being shot at his homecoming party in California.

Family members tell the San Bernardino Sun newspaper that 22-year-old Christopher Sullivan was shot on Friday night at a party that friends threw for him.

Police said two partygoers got into an argument after midnight and one of them opened fire on Mr Sullivan.

The gunman fled the scene.

Mr Sullivan was wounded in a suicide bombing attack last year and has been recovering in Kentucky where he is stationed.

He was home on leave when the shooting occurred.
