MASKED men have shot and wounded a 55-year-old man in Moira.

The victim was hit in the hand during the gun attack at Graham Court, Moira, on Tuesday evening.

His injuries were not believed to be life threatening but did require hospital treatment.

A spokesman for the PSNI said a motive for the shooting has yet to be established.

“Police received a report that as a 55-year-old man alighted from his car he was approached by two masked men, one of whom shot him in the hand.
