Man shot in punishment style attack in St Johnston

A man in his late twenties has been shot in a punishment style attack in Donegal.

Two armed and masked men entered the man's home in St Johnston, close to the Derry border, and shot him in the legs and arms.

It's understood the man was originally from Derry, and had been living in the rented house for a number of months.

Gardai are appealing for information, and have confirmed they are liaising with the PSNI in Derry.

Superintendent Vincent O'Brien is leading the investigation.........
