Gun attack could have killed, says McAllister

Alliance North Belfast Councillor Nuala McAllister has said a shooting incident in Newtownabbey could have resulted in a death.
Two shots were fired at a house in Bawnmore Drive around 8.45pm yesterday (Sunday). A man in his 30s was inside but was unhurt.

Cllr Nuala McAllister said: “I utterly condemn the actions of those behind this shooting. Guns have no place on our streets. The man inside the house was lucky to have escaped injury in what I’m sure was a very traumatic incident.

“Bawnmore Drive is a residential area and this shooting will have caused great concern for those living nearby.

“The people responsible for this shooting are clearly dangerous individuals who must be urgently apprehended by the police, so I would appeal to anyone with information about this incident to contact the PSNI immediately.”
