Mr Dickson was speaking after the incident at St Brendan’s Primary School in Craigavon just after 3pm. It’s believed shots were fired from a car and the man sustained a number of injuries. He has been taken to Craigavon Area Hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.
Mr Dickson condemned those behind the shooting.
“I am shocked by this shooting, which was an utterly reckless act. Not only has a man been rushed to hospital but to carry out this act outside a school when pupils were leaving beggars belief.
“There can never be any justification for a crime like this and those responsible clearly have no regards for life.
“I would urge anybody with any information about this incident to contact the police immediately. The people responsible for this shooting must be apprehended by the police urgently.”
