Londonderry: Man shot in leg 'by appointment'
A 42-year-old man has been shot in an overnight gun attack in Londonderry.
Police said they were investigating a "paramilitary-style shooting" which happened in the Ballymagroarty area of the city at about 23:40 GMT.
Sinn Féin councillor Eric McGinley said he understood the man had been shot in the leg "by appointment" during a so-called punishment attack.
He said: "This is a very worrying development as it's the second shooting in this area in just over a month."
Police said they received a report that a 42-year-old man had been shot in the left leg at Corrib Court by a man described as being approximately 6ft tall, who was wearing a balaclava and dark clothing.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to his injury which is not believed to be life-threatening.
In a statement, Mr McGinley added: "It's important to repeat the message that there is no place for guns on the streets of our city.
"The community does not want this and the people behind these actions need to stop."
