A postmistress was shot in the arm and her son was shot in the leg in an armed raid in Oulart, Co Wexford, this morning.
Four raiders, one armed with a shotgun, entered Sean Og’s shop and post office just before 10am today.
They shot the postmistress, a woman in her sixties in the leg before making off with a small amount of cash. They also shot her son, in his thirties who works in the shop, in the leg.
They were taken to Wexford General hospital by ambulance but neither are described as having life-threatening injuries
A five-mile cordon has been set up around the village and a wider search is also under way
