Police are investigating a suspected shooting incident in Omagh. 

It's believed to have happened in the Thornlea area sometime between 8 and 8.15 last night. 

A black motorbike with two people on board is reported to have been involved. 

It was spotted leaving the area towards Deverney Road.

West Tyrone MP Órfhlaith Begley said: “I was disgusted to hear of the incident in the Thornlea area of Omagh. 
“Those responsible acted recklessly and with intent to cause serious injury or worse. 
“There is no place for guns on our streets and this morning the local community are rightly angered by what happened. 
“This is a quiet area and no one wants to see this type of activity. A PSNI investigation is underway and anyone with information should bring it forward.”
