Loyalist paramilitary link to gun attack on house with children

A SHOOTING in Coleraine at the weekend may be linked to loyalist Paramilitaries operating in the town.

Three adults and two young children were in the House at Loughanhill Park when two masked men entered the property and fired a number of shots shortly after 11.30pm on Sunday. Detective inspector Peter McKenna said: “Two of the children were downstairs, and the adults were in the kitchen when the gunmen fired a number of shots, some of which struck the kitchen table. “The suspects then left. “Thankfully, no-one was injured during this reckless attack that was carried out by faceless thugs who clearly have no regard for the safety of others.

“What is clear is that the hypocrites who carried out this violent attack don’t care at all about the children in the community. “There is absolutely no justification for an attack like this, and we must all work together to bring those responsible to justice and stop this from happening. “An investigation is under way to establish why this attack occurred and who is responsible. “I want to take this opportunity to appeal to anyone who has information about this incident, or who was in the area, prior to around the time the shooting occurred, and who saw anything out of the ordinary to contact detectives in Coleraine on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1782 of 09/02/20 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
