Sinn Féin condemn Derry shooting

11 February, 2009

Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has said that the murder of a man in Derry today was a criminal act and cannot be dressed up as anything else.

Mr McCartney said,

"The shooting dead of a man in his home has all the hallmarks of the type of gangland killings that have plagued Dublin in recent years and I hope that this killing is not the beginning of similar episodes in Derry.

"Whatever the reason for this murder there can be justification in taking his life and those people need to understand that there is no support in the community for these types of actions.

"No matter what label these people operate under they are a criminal gang and those people who have information should come forward and give it to the PSNI." CRÍOCH
