Burglary victim shot in face with pellet gun

A man was shot in the face with a pellet gun during a violent burglary in Co Tyrone.

Three men forced their way into a house in Plumbridge around 1am and demanded money from the sole occupant - a 45-year-old man.

An altercation and scuffle ensued, during which the resident was shot.

The intruders subsequently made off from the property Landahussy Road with a sum of cash.

The man was treated by paramedics for some minor facial injuries but did not require hospital treatment.

PSNI Detective Sergeant Brian Reid appealed for information.

"We are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area and who noticed any people or vehicles," he said.
