No shots fired in Dunloy
North Antrim Sinn Féin Assembly member, Philip McGuigan, has dismissed as "rubbish" reports from the PSNI that a number of shots were fired following a republican commemoration in Dunloy, County Antrim on Sunday 27 February.
The PSNI said they were investigating reports that a number of shots were fired at a motorcyclist travelling along the Garryduff Road by one of three masked men who emerged from a crowd who had remained in the area after the commemoration.
Residents in the village said they did not hear any shots and that there very few people on the road at that time.
McGuigan accused the PSNI of using the gunshot report as a smokescreen to intimidate residents of the village after the well-attended commemoration.
