SDLP North Antrim Assembly candidate and Rasharkin local Connor Duncan has condemned those responsible for a gun attack in his home village last night. Shots were fired through windows of a house in Moneyleck Park at about 22:20 on Monday and a man was hospitalised with injuries he sustained during the attack.
Mr Duncan said: “Speaking with people at the scene they are utterly shocked by this obscene act of violence. I was in the area last night when the victim of this horrific attack was taken away by paramedics and I wish him a full and fast recovery from his injuries.
“Those responsible showed a contemptible recklessness and viciousness in carrying out their attack.
“The people of North Antrim are tired of living under the tyranny of violence but it can only ever end if the community and our elected representatives take a stand against those who want it to continue. That means no equivocation on the use of violence and it means helping the police as they seek to take these criminals off our streets.
“I have spoken with the PSNI this morning and I encourage anyone with information relating to this attack to contact them immediately.”
