Armagh shooting unjustifiable

8 November, 2005

Sinn Féin MP for Newry & Armagh Conor Murphy today said that people in the area were shocked at the brutal killing of a man outside Keady last night.

Mr Murphy said:

" Whatever was the motivation behind this killing it was unjustifiable, wrong and should not have happened.

" There is some suspicions locally that one of the dissident micro organisations may well have been involved in this killing.

" Initial reports are suggesting that this was an Armagh man who was abducted from his home in the city yesterday and brutally shot outside Keady.

" There can be no possible justification for this killing. I would extend my sympathies to the mans family and friends at this very difficult time." ENDS
