Shot man hailed taxi

A 35-year-old man received minor injuries after a shooting at the weekend.

He suffered injuries to the neck when a man - who was armed with a pellet gun - walked into the White Country Inn in Banteer on Sunday night and fired at him.

The victim of the shooting declined an offer of an ambulance to take him to hospital and instead took a taxi home.

Gardai are investigating and have begun interviewing witnesses.
