Man shot in Ewing Street

A man was shot in a gun attack in the Ewing Street area of the city on Tuesday night.

The victim sustained gunshot wounds to an arm and leg during the attack, which happened shortly after 10pm.

He was taken to Altnagelvin hospital and treated for his injuries, where his condition was described as stable.

Foyle SDLP MLA Mark H Durkan said children were playing in the area at the time of the shooting.

“It is certainly not an attack that has been carried out in the name of the people of Ewing Street, it is certainly not an attack that has been carried out in the name of the people of Derry,” he said.

Sinn Féin councillor Maeve McLaughlin also condemned the gun attack. “This is a very worrying incident and is the second time in just a few days that guns have been used in our city. People do not want these actions taking place on their streets and those behind them need to stop,” she said.
