A Canberra man has described the moment he looked down and saw a hole in his arm, after he was shot during an altercation in his home last year.

Two men — 20-year-old Reece Salcedo and 23-year-old Nathan Brian Stretton — are on trial in the ACT Supreme Court for their alleged involvement in the attack.

The court heard a 13-year-old girl who was in the house at the time also suffered superficial wounds to her back and buttocks during the fight.

The victim told the court the incident began when he went to his garage to get drugs, and heard voices outside.

He said when he went out two men who he had never seen before were demanding his car keys from his partner.

The man told the court that earlier in the day he had been involved in an accident with a woman with whom he had once run a drug business.

He said things had soured between them so he had taunted her when he saw her driving.

“I was driving in front of her more or less like a smart arse,” he said.

The court heard the woman had run into the back of the car he was driving, prompting an angry exchange.

“I said what the f*** are you doing you dumb slut?” he told the court.

He said when the men came to his house and demanded the keys he replied: “You’re f***ing dreaming mate”.

But the man said when he went into the garage to call the police, one of the men broke in the front door.

The man said when he went into the house one of the pair shot at him.

“I said you’re f***ing dead c***,” he said.

“I ran at him with a pole.”

The man told the court he hit one of the men with the pole, and he was then shot at from behind.

“I looked down and saw a massive hole in my arm,” he said.

“I’m like ‘you f***ing shot me’.”

The court heard Mr Salcedo and Mr Stretton then allegedly ran from the house, before police and ambulance officers arrived.

The jury also saw police videos of the victim picking out images of the two accused from photo boards.
