A MAN has been shot in the head with an air gun at a Co Fermanagh marina.

The shooting happened at Lochside Marina, Sligo Road, Enniskillen, whilst the male was on the water between 10.10pm and 10.20pm on Friday.

Police said he is "expected to make a full recovery", but took "this opportunity to remind everyone that the use of any firearm, including pellet guns, carries a huge responsibility, and should not be carried on land without the landowners permission".

"There is also massive potential to cause injury to others if they are not treated with respect, even if it is unintentional," a spokesman added.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information regarding this incident, please call 101 quoting reference number 780 26/05/18. Alternatively, information can also be provided to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
