Police appeal for information over south Armagh shooting

Sinn Féin councillor Barra Ó Muirí has condemned a shooting in south Armagh on Wednesday.

DETECTIVES are appealing for information following a shooting incident in south Armagh on Wednesday.

Several shots were fired at a house on the Cloghoge Road area of Cullyhanna shortly after 11pm, breaking a number of downstairs windows.

A woman and her son were in the property at the time. They were not injured but were said to be shocked by the attack.

Detective Sergeant Bell appealed to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone who has information that would assist with police enquiries, asking witnesses to contact detectives at Ardmore on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1560 21/02/18.

Sinn Féin councillor Barra Ó Muirí condemned the attack saying it was an "extremely reckless act" which endangered the lives of those in the house.

"There is no place for guns on our streets and anyone with any information should bring it to the PSNI", he said.
