Man injured in paramilitary style shooting in Derry

first_img Man injured in paramilitary style shooting in Derry Homepage BannerNews Detectives in Derry are appealing for witnesses to an altercation between two men that took place in the Aileach road area of the city, shortly before 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoon. Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: “We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area close to the Ringfort Road roundabout on the Aileach Road around this time and saw what happened. It was reported that a man who was carrying a yellow plastic bag was shot in the leg by a second man. The assailant made off on foot, carrying what we believe was a handgun.“The victim was able to walk to a nearby church where he contacted police.“We believe this was a paramilitary-style shooting and although the man’s injuries are not life-threatening, this was a brutal attack and yet another example of how criminal groups seek to control communities through fear and violence. “Anyone with information about this crime or who may be able to help identify the perpetrator should contact detectives at Strand Road on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 619 of 26/12/17.“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.” Google+ Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Previous articleTraveling With GodNext articleHeather Menzies-Urich, The Sound of Music’s Louisa von Trapp, dies News Highland Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp Pinterest Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA By News Highland – December 26, 2017 center_img Twitter Google+ Facebook Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows DL Debate – 24/05/21 News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programmelast_img read more
