Man shot in St. Johnston 23.01.08

Gardai are investigating the shooting of a man in St. Johnston last night. Three masked men, two armed with hand guns and one with a pick axe handle, entered a house in the area and shot the man in both legs. He was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries which are not life threatening.
Two men and a woman who were in the house at the time, were not injured. The attackers escaped in a white Cavalier car belonging to the victim. This was later found burnt out in Lifford. The scenes at St. Johnston and Lifford have been preserved for technical examination.
