Dickson says those behind shooting need taken off streets immediately

Alliance East Antrim MLA Stewart Dickson has said those behind a shooting in Greenisland need taken off the streets immediately.

Mr Dickson was speaking after a man in his 30s was shot in the legs in the Station Road area around 8.10pm on Friday. He is currently being treated in hospital.

“As a resident of Greenisland, I have seen first-hand the revulsion after this shooting tonight,” he said.

“My thoughts are with the victim after what must have been a horrific experience. It is frightening to hear about more guns in our community. Those who carried out this attack need taken off the streets immediately before they repeat this disgusting act of violence.

“If anyone has any information on this incident, I ask them to give it to police immediately.”
