Dickson expresses shock after murder investigation launched

Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has expressed his shock after police launched a murder investigation following the discovery of a man's body in Co Antrim.

The deceased was found in his home on the Church Road in Glenwherry around 1pm today (Tuesday). It is understood he had been shot and had been discovered by a neighbour.

"This is a shocking incident and my thoughts are with the loved ones of the deceased at what must be an extremely sad time for them. It will have caused great distress in what is a quiet, rural area," said Mr Dickson.

"It is important the police establish the circumstances of this man's death. If anyone has any information whatsoever, I would urge them to contact the PSNI with it immediately."
