Elderly brothers robbed by gang

Two elderly brothers were held captive in their Ballymena home as it was robbed by a gang of four on Friday night.

At least two of the gang were armed and one of the victims was hit with a screwdriver before being shot in the hand with a starter pistol, leaving him with bruising.

The brothers were held in a downstairs room of their Crankill home as the gang ransacked the house before making off with cash and a shotgun.

All four men were said to have local |Ballymena accents.
