McCarthy condemns Derry house shooting and violence

Alliance Chief Whip Kieran McCarthy MLA has condemned a shooting incident at Dove Gardens in Londonderry at around 11pm last night and he also condemned violence which took place later. Two men were in the house at the time of the shooting. Petrol bombs and other missiles were later thrown and a PSNI Officer was injured.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “These were despicable events. It is appalling that a PSNI officer was injured after being hit by a stone during the violence. My thoughts are with the officer and I wish them a speedy recovery.

“It is deeply troubling that two men were in the house at the time of the shooting and this must have been a very traumatic event. Those involved in these events must be brought to justice and I appeal to anyone with information to contact police immediately.”
