Police at scene of shooting in Mosside near Ballymoney
Police are at the scene of a shooting on Knockmore Road in Mosside Village, near Ballymoney on Monday evening.
It is believed a man is in a serious condition after he was shot.
Officers were called to the scene in Mosside Gardens just after 19:30.
Police have confirmed that a man has been taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries and have appealed for witnesses to contact them.
Tonight’s shooting incident comes as local police bring in more resources to combat a rise in attacks.
There were fourteen shootings last year in the Causeway Coast and Glens policing district. This compared to ZERO in 2019.
Sinn Féin North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan has condemned the shooting incident in Mosside village:
“I condemn totally this shooting in moss-side and my thoughts are with the victim.
“This obviously isn’t an isolated incident. In fact the frequency of this type of shooting incident across a small geographical area of North Antrim and East Derry is extremely disturbing.
“The PSNI need to get to grips with this situation and catch the thugs responsible.”
