A MAN IN his 30s has been taken to hospital after being shot at his home in Derry.

The incident happened in the Churchlands Road area of Coleraine at around 10.30pm last night.

It is reported that the man was shot after refusing to answer his front door, and that he was struck by two shots fired through the door of the property.

Two men were later seen leaving the area and heading towards the Winston Way area of Coleraine following the incident.

A PSNI spokesman said enquiries are underway to establish the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

“This was a brutal attack for which there is no justification. There is no place for attacks such as this in our society,” a statement said.
