Shooting incident in the Ballymagroarty area of Derry -McGinley

Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has condemned an incident during which it reported a number of men were shot in the legs by a masked gang in the Ballymagroarty area of Derry.

Cllr Eric McGinley said;

“This is a shocking incident.

“Sadly, there have been a number of similar attacks in the area over the past twelve months.

“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 this community.

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