Man (50) arrested over Derry Sevenoakes shooting

A man has been arrested over a shooting in Londonderry.

A number of shots were fired in the Sevenoaks area of the city on Tuesday, July 24.

It's thought a silver Peugeot car rammed into a black car as it drove near the entrance to Sevenoaks before a number of shots were fired at the driver.

No one was injured.  The silver Peugeot was abandoned and set alight at Lincoln Court a short time after the incident.

A 50-year-old was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in police custody.

Detectives continue to appeal to anyone who was in the Sevenoaks or Lincoln Court areas on Tuesday morning and who witnessed any of the incidents or anyone who has any information which could assist with the investigation to contact detectives at Strand Road on 101 quoting reference number 252 24/07/18. 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.
