Clarke concerned after shot fired at Newcastle pub

Alliance Councillor Patrick Clarke has said he is concerned over reports a shot was fired at a pub in Newcastle.

The shot was fired as two masked men left the bar on Main Street, shortly before 9.30pm last night.

Councillor Patrick Clarke said: “I am very concerned at this incident and must criticise those behind this act of violence.

“Those behind this incident clearly don’t care about whose lives they put at risk. This would have been a terrible ordeal for anyone in the vicinity and we must be thankful no-one was seriously hurt.

“I would appeal to anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible, so these individuals can be removed from our streets.”
