Cllr Billy Webb said: “I utterly condemn those responsible for this attack. There is absolutely no place on our streets for guns. People want to go about their lives without the fear of this type of violence in their neighbourhood.
“I hope that this man is able to make a recovery from what appears to be very serious injuries.
“I would call on anybody with any information about this shooting to contact the police. The people who carried out this attack are offering nothing to our society and need to be urgently apprehended by the police.”
