Dickson shocked at Islandmagee shooting

Alliance East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has condemned a shooting which took place in Ballystrudder Gardens in Islandmagee on Friday. Two masked men entered a house, one of whom was armed with a handgun, who then fired five shots.

Nobody was injured. Police are treating it as attempted murder. A car linked with the shooting was found burnt out a short time later.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “There can be no justification for this shooting. Guns have no place on our streets. Those responsible are callous and cold-blooded individuals who have no regard for the consequences of their actions.

“This must have been a very frightening experience for the occupants of this house. I am just glad that no-one was injured in this incident

“If anybody has any information about this shooting then I would urge them to contact the Police. Those responsible clearly pose a danger to the public and must be urgently apprehended.”
