Councillor William McCandless, the Ulster Unionist Party’s East Londonderry Assembly candidate, has condemned the shooting incident which took place in the James Street area of Coleraine this evening.

Councillor McCandless said:

“I am absolutely disgusted to learn that a man and a woman have been shot and wounded in Coleraine this evening. James Street is a quiet street and the local community is absolutely shocked to learn of this incident.

“There is simply no excuse for bringing guns onto the streets and using them against anyone. This is exactly the type of criminality that the new Assembly must help take a stand to eradicate.

“It is absolutely essential that the Police catch whoever was responsible for this and ensure that he and the weapon he carried are removed from the streets of Coleraine. I appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious around 19:15 this evening in the vicinity of James Street, or who knows anything about this incident to come forward immediately.”
