SDLP Councillor Brian Tierney has condemned those behind a shooting in the Galliagh area of the city last night. 

He said:

 

“This savage attack and those behind it have no place in this city. This man was shot in both legs and through a mixture of fear, adrenaline and shock started running from Brookdale Park before collapsing in Leafair Gardens. I can’t begin to imagine how terrified he must have been.

 

“I would appeal to people in this community, if you heard or saw anything please come forward. The only way we can stop these people is by helping the police.”
