Man shot multiple times in Derry

A man was shot multiple times in the legs in Londonderry on Wednesday evening.

Police responded to reports of shots being fired in the Creggan area of Derry around 9:30pm.

The man, who is aged in his 20s, was taken to hospital by the Ambulance Service for treatment.

Foyle SDLP MLA Mark H Durkan said that guns had no place on the streets.

"All violence does is create more violence and more victims," Mr Durkan said.

Local Sinn Fein councillor Kevin Campbell said that the incident had taken place in Oakland Park.

“I utterly condemn this attack," he said.

“These actions should stop immediately and those responsible should pack up and get off the backs of the community.

“Anyone with information on this shooting should bring it forward to the police immediately.”
