The Chair of the Derry and Strabane Policing and Community Safety Partnership Alderman Mary Hamilton has condemned last night’s shootings in Ballmagroarty and Rossnagalliagh.
Speaking after the incidents, Alderman Hamilton stated: "These attacks must be condemned by all of us and have no place in a city that is trying to move forward. In one of the attacks an elderly man in his 60s was shot in the leg by masked men while shots were fired at a house in Rossnagalliagh.
“It is clear that those criminal elements responsible for the attacks have absolutely no concern for people living in these areas. My thoughts are with the man who was shot in the leg and those living in Ballymagroarty and Rossnagalliagh. I would urge anyone with information on these crimes to contact the PSNI or Crimestoppers immediately.”
