A 26-year-old man was shot in the legs in Co Armagh

A 26-YEAR-OLD man was shot in the legs in a paramilitary-style attack in Co Armagh.

Several men forced their way into a house in Meadowbrook in Craigavon shortly after 11pm on Wednesday.

They then dragged the man outside the house and shot him.

He remained in a stable condition in hospital yesterday.

Meanwhile, a shot was fired into the wall of a house in Dromara, Co Down on Wednesday.

At about 8.40pm two masked men entered the property on Park Road and tied up two men.

When a third man called to the house, he was also tied up. They were threatened before a shot was fired into a wall.

Detective Inspector Denise Graham said the three men had been left shaken.

"No one has the right to intimidate or threaten another person," she said.
