Cllr Billy Webb said: “I am shocked and outraged at this shooting. I just can not understand the thinking of those who carried out this attack. This shooting has no place in our society.
“This was a callous and brutal attack on man in his home. I am sure that it was a very traumatic experience for this man and I hope he is able to make a swift recovery.
“If anybody has any information about this shooting then they must contact the police. These thugs must be severely punished by the courts for their mindless actions.”
