The incident occurred around 11pm.

Cllr Eric McGinley said;

“Such attacks are wrong and I condemn it.

“There can be no place for the use of guns or gangs of masked men on the streets of our city.

“All of this is in stark contrast to the good work that is going on in the area. In the past few  weeks we have seen the official opening of the new pitch and Play Park giving a massive boost to the local community. As well as the many local festivals attended by hundreds of local people.

“I would call on anyone with information on this shooting incident to bring it forward to the PSNI.”
