Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady has condemned those responsible for the shooting of a young man in the Carnagat area in Newry last night. Newry Times understands that the 25 year old man is a member of the travelling community and he was attacked in the Ardcarne Park area of the city by a group of men shortly before 9:00pm. The injured man was rushed to Daisy Hill Hospital before being transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast, where his injuries are not believed to be life threatening. Speaking to Newry Times, Brady said, “I want to condemn this incident outright, this attack on a young man is disgraceful and the perpetrators have no support for their actions. I would urge anyone with any information in relation to this attack to pass it on to the PSNI.” DUP MLA William Irwin MLA stated, “This is obviously a very sinister incident and should be condemned outright by all right thinking people. He added, “This sort of maverick behaviour is highly dangerous and unwanted in society, the full weight of the law must fall on whoever was responsible for this shooting and I would request the community to come forward with any information and pass it to the PSNI.” Meanwhile the PSNI in Newry said they are investigating the incident. A spokesman said, “A 25 year-old man received gunshot wounds to both his legs after he was attacked by approximately three unknown persons in the Ardcarne Park area. The investigation is in its early stages and a motive for the shooting has yet to be established.” The spokesman added, “Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact detectives at Ardmore CID on 0846 600 8000or the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.” More on this story: Man shot in both ankles in Ardcarne Park
