Man shot in 'brutal and horrific' paramilitary-style attack
The PSNI has appealed for witnesses to come forward.

A MAN WAS shot in a paramilitary-style shooting in Derry last night.

The PSNI has appealed for witnesses to come forward after the incident. It was reported that a 41-year-old man had been shot in the ankle close to shops in Creggan at around 7.45pm. He was taken to hospital for treatment.

Detective Sergeant Reid said: “Whilst these injuries are not life-threatening, this was a brutal and horrific attack. It is yet another example of how criminal groups seek to control communities through fear and violence.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident or anyone with any information that can assist with the investigation to contact Detectives in Strand Road.

“We are particularly keen to speak with anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area of Creggan shops or Westway. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime,” he said.
