Alliance Councillor Amanda Grehan has said she is in shock following a suspected murder in Lisburn.
A woman died at a house in Mornington Lane shortly after 6am today (Monday). Another woman and a man were taken to hospital with suspected stab wounds. The man has since been discharged. A 19-year-old man has been arrested.
Councillor Grehan said her thoughts were with the victim’s loved ones.
“This is a relatively new development, made up of people from all walks of life, and is usually very quiet. There is a shock among residents in the wider Mornington area, as they have never had to deal with anything like this here before.
“My thoughts are with the loved ones of the victim. Christmas Day is one most people spend with their families and is full of joyous moments. However, now we have one family plunged into grief and despair.
“I would urge anyone with information on this terrible incident to take it to police immediately.”
