Man in serious condition after shooting in Co Down

A man is in a serious condition following a shooting in Co Down.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has launched an investigation and are appealing for those with information to come forward.

Shortly after 8pm, it was reported that a man aged in his 40s had been shot in his abdomen while in the car park on Rathfriland Road in the Banbridge area.

The man was taken to hospital where his condition has been described as “serious”.

A person then left the scene in a silver Citroen vehicle heading southbound on the A1 dual carriageway, the PSNI said.

Police are exploring a link between a vehicle reported on fire around 20 minutes later in the Drone Hill Road area of Corbet.

A man in his 40s has been arrested in connection with the investigation.

The Drone Hill Road and Rathfriland Road, including its off-slip and on-slip to the A1 dual carriageway, remained closed on last night with cordons in place as police inquiries continue.

DUP MP for Upper Bann Carla Lockhart asked those with information to contact the PSNI on 101 or via the confidential hotline.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 1683 12/04/24. The independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
