Man sustains life-threatening injuries after shots fired into house
The PSNI are appealing for information after a man was seriously injured in a shooting in Craigavon.
Chief Inspector Jon Burrows said on the PSNI website: “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.”
The PSNI are investigating a possible link to a silver Skoda car which was seen acting suspiciously in the area before the shooting.
It was found burnt out in the New Line area a short time later.
Anyone who has any information or who noticed anything suspicious is asked to contact the police at Dungannon Police Station on 101, quoting reference number 64 13/02/17.
Alternatively, information can be given to the Crimestoppers charity confidentially by telephoning 0800 555 111.
