Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has condemned the shooting of a man in the Central Drive area of Creggan on Thursday night.
He said “The shooting of this man is wrong and I condemn it.
“The people of Creggan and this city do not want these actions taking place on their streets.Just this week we had hundreds of children and people of all ages taking part in Christmas events and events to mark the 70th anniversary of Creggan ,celebrating all that is good about this community.
“It’s clear those responsible have nothing to offer society and are at war with the local community.
“There can be no justification for such actions and I would encourage anyone with information about this incident to bring it forward to the police.”
