Two men targetted in Derry punishment style shooting

Two men were taken to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry last night after being shot in what appears to be a punishment type shooting in the High Park area in Creggan.

The shooting occurred shortly after 7 p.m. and it is thought that both men were shot in one leg each.

This is the third punishment type shooting in Derry in recent weeks. In mid November two men were shot in separate incidents in the space of a week.

Foyle MLA Pat Ramsey says such activity has no support in the local area:
