Boyle expresses disgust after shooting in town

Alliance Coleraine Councillor Yvonne Boyle has expressed her utter disgust after a woman was left in a critical condition following a shooting in the town in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The 61-year-old woman was injured after shots were fired at her home in the Bushmills Road area. She is in critical condition in hospital.

“There will be widespread condemnation and disgust at this incident, which has brought unwanted, negative headlines into our town,” said Councillor Boyle.

“My thoughts are with the victim and I hope she makes a full recovery.

“Violence like this is never acceptable. Yet the those behind it won’t achieve their aim of pulling us backwards. As a community we are united in moving forward, creating the kind of society we can all be proud of.

“I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible.”
