Man seriously injured in gun attack

A MAN has been left seriously injured in a shooting last night which gardai are treating as attempted murder.

Gardai in Drogheda are investigating the incident which occurred at 9.30pm last night at The Paddocks housing estate in Termonfeckin, Co Louth.

The victim, who is in his 40s, was reversing out of a driveway when a loan gunman approached him and shot him.

It is understood the gunman escaped in a late 1990s dark-blue Volkswagen Passat.

Following the shooting, the man was rushed to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda where he remains in a serious condition today.

The scene has been preserved for a forensic and technical examination by gardai.
