Boyle condemns Coleraine shooting

Alliance Councillor Yvonne Boyle has condemned the shameful attack on a 15-year-old boy in the Coleraine area.

The attack happened at Glebe Avenue in the early hours of Monday morning, when three masked me entered the house and shot him.

Councillor Yvonne Boyle said: “This was a despicable attack and must be condemned. The whole community is in shock at such a cruel attack on a young boy.

“This type of behaviour cannot be allowed to continue and it is unbelievable that the victim was only 15-years-old. Causing harm to others is a completely unacceptable way to deal with any tensions in the community.

“My thoughts are with the victim and I hope he will make a full recovery and be able to overcome the injuries he sustained.

“This attack is not representative of the community at large and we must send a clear message it will not be tolerated. Anyone with information must come forward and contact the PSNI as soon as possible.”
