Three men have been arrested in connection with the shooting of a man in Strabane on Monday night.

The 24-year-old man was shot in both legs in a paramilitary-style attack in Lisnafin Park in the town.

Four men entered the house at about 2300 BST on Monday and forced the man into the garden where they shot him.

He was taken to hospital where he is receiving treatment. Police have appealed to anyone with information about the attack to contact them.

PSNI Chief Inspector Andy Lemon condemned the attack.

"No-one has the right to take the law into their own hands and the community in Strabane, don't want or don't need this sort of activity," he said.

Dissident republicans have been behind a series of similar shootings.
