Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has condemned the shooting of a man in the Cecilia’s Walk area of Blighs Lane tonight.
Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue said
“Tonight’s shooting at Cecilia’s Walk has to be condemned. There can be absolutely no justification for this type of action. This must have been a very frightening experience for everyone caught up in this, especially as its reported that a number of young children were in the vicinity at the time of the shooting.
It’s very sad that when thousands of people were out tonight celebrating the turning on of the Christmas lights in the city centre that others were trying to drag our society backwards and bringing guns onto our streets.
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.
