Double shooting in Bangor


Two men have been injured in a double shooting in Bangor.

One man was shot in the leg while another was shot three times in the chest at the Whitehill Estate early on Monday morning.

Both men were taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries.

North Down DUP MLA Gordon Dunne condemned the shooting.

He said: “I am appalled at this shooting attack taking place in Bangor, there is no place for this type of activity within our community. I would urge anyone with any information to contact the PSNI immediately. This whole incident has sent shock waves through the local community at this time.

“My sympathies go out to the victims of this attack, I know there is a feeling of shock within the local vicinity of this attack, that something like this would take place in what is a very quiet, residential area.”
