Police are looking for two people who followed a man home and attacked him for his casino winnings.

Scott Farrow, 51,  is in serious, but stable condition, this morning.

On Monday night, he won a few thousand dollars at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond.

After he got home in Palos Heights, two men broke in and demanded his winnings.

They hit Farrow on the head and shot him in the stomach when he refused.

Farrow made it to his neighbors’ house and had them call for help.

Police say the two robbers left tracks in the snow as they ran to a getaway car parked at 131st and 80th Ave.

The Horseshoe Casino says it’s looking to see if any of its security video shows the suspects.

Palos Heights police say this is the first shooting in the Southwest suburb in about 25 years.
