Fatal Creggan shooting

24 June, 2008

Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson condemned last night's fatal shooting of a young man in the Creggan area of Derry.

"First and foremost, my thoughts and condolences go to the family and friends of this young man.

"This shooting has to be condemned and there can be absolutely no justification for this type of action.

"Whoever was responsible needs to own up and give a clear explanation for their actions.

"Any organisation which takes the law into its own hands needs to disband and desist.

"We are in a new era, we are creating a new society for the younger generation and there can be no place for this type of activity.

"Anybody with information about this killing should also give it to the PSNI. This was a criminal act and anyone who attempts to attach any kind of political justification to it is deluding themselves and our community." ENDS
