Gun attack on Belfast home of vigilante victim's daughter

Dan Murray who was murdered last year

THE daughter of a man murdered by a vigilante group has escaped injury in a gun attack on her west Belfast home.

Nicole Murray's father Dan Murray was shot dead in his car as he worked as a take away delivery driver in May of last year.

A vigilante group calling itself Republican Action Against Drugs claimed responsibility for the murder of the 55-year-old, who had been shot and injured in a previous attack thought to have been carried out by the same group.

It is understood that Ms Murray was in an upstairs bedroom when shots were fired at her Norglen Parade home in the early hours of Monday morning.

Detectives say at approximately 1.30am police received a report that a number of shots had been fired through the living room window of the house.

There were two adults and three children in the house at the time of the incident and there is no indication at this time about a motive for the shooting incident or who was behind the attack.

"Thankfully no one was injured as a result of this incident", a PSNI spokesperson said.

Detective Sergeant Duffield said anyone who noticed any suspicious persons or vehicles in the area should contact Detectives at Reactive and Organised Crime at Musgrave Street.
