Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has condemned a shooting incident in Dungiven last night.

The East Derry MLA said,

“A man from Derry was taken to Altnagelvin hospital by ambulance after being found shot in the legs in Dungiven. Thankfully his condition is not life threatening but this is a disturbing incident.

“There is absolutely no place for this type of behaviour in our society, it is totally unacceptable.

“I would urge anyone with information to bring it to the attention of the PSNI.

Detectives at Strand Road are investigating the report of an incident in which a 22 year old man was abducted from the Londonderry area on the evening of Wednesday 19th October and taken to Hass Park in Dungiven, where he was subjected to a paramilitary style shooting.

The man was found at Hass Park at around 8pm with a gunshot wound to his leg which is not believed to be life threatening.

Detective Constable Donnell is keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the Glenowen Park area of Londonderry and who noticed anything unusual or untoward between 6.30pm and 8pm, or anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the Glenshane Road area close to Altnagelvin Hospital, or at Hass Park in Dungiven, between these times. Anyone with information should contact detectives in Strand Road on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
