GARDAÍ IN MAYO are appealing for information following the shooting of a man in his 30s at a house in the Castlegrove Estate of Castlebar last night.

The shooting incident occurred at 8.30pm, with a number of shots fired. The wounded man is recovering in hospital and his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Gardaí believe that the people involved fled the scene in a bronze coloured Audi car which has not yet been located.

It is understood that this incident maybe linked to another shooting at the Mace Service Station in Castlebar on 6 January this year, when a relative of the man injured last night was also shot. Those responsible for the shooting on that occasion fled from the scene in a black coloured Golf GTI car which has not been located to date.

Gardaí at Castlebar are appealing for assistance from members of the public regarding any sightings of either of the two vehicles involved in the shootings.

Anyone with information can contact Castlebar Garda Station on 094 9022222 or the Garda Confidential line at 1800 666111 or their local garda station regarding any information pertaining to these investigations.
