Detectives are appealing for information following a shooting incident in the Craigavon area in the early hours of this morning, Monday 13 February.

Chief Inspector Jon Burrows explained: “At approximately 1:45am, police received a report that a number of shots had been fired through the living room window of a house in the Carrigart Crescent area.

“A 31-year-old male who was in the house was taken to hospital for treatment for injuries which are described as life threatening at this stage. There was no-one else in the house at the time.”

Police are investigating a possible link to a silver Skoda car which was seen acting suspiciously in the Carrigart area before the shooting. It was found burnt out in the New Line area a short time later.
