McCartney hits out after Derry bomb and gun attacks
Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney MLA commenting on shooting incidents in Shantallow and a bomb attack in Creggan this evening and a shooting in Ballymagroarty last night said:
"It is a very worrying development that there have been three incidents in less than 24 hours in the city.
"The people of Derry have made it clear over the years that they do not want this type of activity in their communities. Those behind it need to stop.
"The gangs behind these attacks have no regard for anyone and if they continue with this reckless agenda it is only a matter of time before a member of the public is killed or injured.
The vice-Chair of the Assembly’s Justice Committee went on to say:
"The shooting incident in Shantallow is the second on the streets of our city in less than 24 hours.
"Derry is a place looking to the future and will not be held back by criminal gangs masquerading as republicans."
