Neeson condemns Monkstown shooting

East Antrim Alliance MLA Seán Neeson has described a gun attack on a man in Monkstown last night as totally despicable. The man was shot in the leg in the Tynan Close area.

Sean Neeson MLA said: “This was a totally despicable attack. People who are vicious enough carry out attacks like this must be taken off our street as they pose a real danger to the whole community.

“Attacks of this nature send a shudder of fear throughout the community. Those responsible must be caught quickly and must face the full rigours of the law. How can people carry out a brutal attack like this and live with themselves?

“My thoughts are with the victim of this attack, and I call on anyone who has information on the incident to contact police immediately.”
