A man has been shot dead in the village of Waringstown in Co Down.

The shooting happened at a petrol station shortly after 9pm. 

It is believed the PSNI is treating the shooting as a possible criminal feud and that dissident republicans were not involved.

Main Street has been closed and diversions are in place.

DUP Upper Bann MLA Carla Lockhart said: "It is shocking at anytime for someone to be shot in the constituency but more so in somewhere like Waringstown. It is a generally quiet village with a thriving population and I would condemn this in the strongest terms. 

"My thoughts and prayers are with the family caught up in this incident and [I] would appeal to anyone with information to come forward to the police."

SDLP Upper Bann MLA Dolores Kelly said: "The local community is in shock this evening … This is a quiet, settled village and people are appalled that violence has been brought onto their streets.

"I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area at around 10pm this evening to come forward and assist police with their investigation."
