SDLP Councillor Martin Reilly has urged anyone with any information about the incident in the Sevenoaks area of Derry earlier this morning to contact the Police or Crimestoppers.
He said: “Police have cordoned off two locations within the Sevenoaks area following reports of two loud bangs in the area this morning. The Police remain on the scene and I would encourage people to avoid the area where possible.
“I have spoken with residents and Police this morning and will continue to liaise with them.
“This is unwanted and unnecessary disruption to those who are travelling to work and going about their day.
