SDLP Councillor Thomas O’Hanlon has condemned those behind a shooting in Keady on Friday evening and has called on anyone with information to come forward to the police.

Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor O’Hanlon said, “I condemn those behind this reckless attack.  The incident took place at the business premises of a very well respected local family. 

“They are distraught and disgusted at this incident. They, their staff or customers could have been seriously hurt or even killed. This community is stunned at this reckless attack and it must be condemned outright.

Article continues below:

“Whoever is behind this attack and whatever their misguided intentions are, they cannot be justified.  We thought the days of guns on our streets were over, so too is any form of kangaroo justice. 

O’Hanlon added, “No one should take the law into their own hands. I would appeal for anyone who knows anything about this incident or the motivation behind it to come forward to police.”
