Gardai are investigating whether the shooting of a man in his 40s in Ballyvolance last night is linked to an earlier gun attack on the same man over a year ago.
The man, who is Irish, was outside his house at Chapelgate off Glenheights Road when a lone gunman approached him at around 7.45pm and fired several shots at him.
He was hit a number of times in the upper body and arms but didn’t lose consciousness and was able to raise the alarm and the emergency services were alerted and paramedics attended the scene.
