A man has been shot four times in a so-called paramilitary 'punishment shooting' in Derry.

The attack happened last night in the Lisfannon Park area at around 9.35pm.

The 33-year-old victim sustained wounds to his legs and body but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. 

Detective Sergeant Phelan said: “The victim was taken to hospital with wounds to his legs and abdomen. His injuries though serious, are not believed to be life threatening at this time.

"We believe four masked men were involved in this brutal and horrific attack and we would ask for the community’s help in identifying those individuals.
