Alliance Councillors condemn those behind shooting

Alliance Councillors have condemned those behind a shooting in Derry-Londonderry.

Around 8.45pm yesterday (Tuesday) two masked men entered a house in Margaret Street in the Waterside area of the city and shot the man. He is receiving treatment for his injuries.

“I am relieved no-one was killed in this incident,” said Councillor Philip McKinney.

“There is disgust right across the city at the news guns have once again been brought onto our streets, particularly in a residential area. There is no excuse for this kind of act and I utterly condemn it.”

“Those who carried this out represent nobody and are not welcome here. It is difficult to understand the mentality of those who show such a callous disregard for life, as we could easily be talking this morning about someone being killed,” added Councillor Rachael Ferguson.

“If anyone has any information on this incident, I urge them to take it to police immediately so those responsible can be taken off the streets.”
