Newtownards drive-by shooting has shocked the town

Strangford Alliance MLA Kieran McCarthy has condemned a shooting in Newtownards saying the town is stunned at the nature of the incident. A 28 year old man was shot at 10pm in the Brewery Lane/ Regent Street area of the town last night.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “It is simply horrific that something like this could happen in a quiet town like Newtownards.

“No-one wants the spectre of the troubles to raise its ugly head again and Northern Ireland must not be prevented from moving to a totally peaceful future.
