Detectives are appealing for information following a paramilitary style shooting in the Ardmonagh Parade area of Belfast last night (Thursday, 12 April).

Detective Inspector Harvey said: “Shortly before 10:30 pm last night it was reported that a 20 year old man was attacked by three men and shot three times in the legs and ankle. The victim was then taken to hospital where he received treatment for the injuries sustained during this violent crime. This was a brutal and despicable attack, which has left the victim with potentially life changing injuries. It is yet another example of how criminal groups seek to control communities through fear and violence.”

I would appeal to anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area, to contact Detectives at Musgrave Criminal Investigation Branch on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1360 12/04/18. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
