DETECTIVES in Fermanagh are investigating after a man was shot in the head with an air gun in the area of Lochside Marina in Enniskillen last Friday night.

The male who is expected to make a full recovery was on the water between 10.10pm and 10.20pm when the incident took place.

In a statement, a spokesman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland reminded the public 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,” he said.

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