A Wendouree shooting victim has told a court Jamie Brincat phoned him after the alleged incident apologising for shooting him.
Rhys Stork told the Ballarat Magistrates' Court on Thursday he was at a Wendouree home on October 9 when Brincat started "going off".
"I had my hands up telling him to calm down," Mr Stork said.
Mr Stork agreed with Brincat's lawyer, Sam Norton, Brincat was swinging around a taser at some point.
Mr Stork then went out a back door and knocked over a child, the court was told.
"When that happened his (Brincat's) demeanour changed. He became angrier?" Mr Norton said.
"Yes," Mr Stork said.
Mr Stork said he could not remember wrestling with Brincat and did not see a gun during the alleged incident.
He agreed he thought he had been punched.
After leaving the scene, Mr Stork agreed with Mr Norton he received a phone call from Brincat who was crying, saying “Sorry I shot you".
Mr Stork said he was put into an induced coma after the alleged shooting.
He said he has had surgery twice and his injury was still not 100 per cent healed.
Brincat, 23, is charged with attempted murder.
The committal hearing continues.
