Guards now assisted by Irish Army
Armed Gardaí continue to surround a rural property some three miles from Burnfoot village, where a murder suspect has remained since approximately 5pm.
Kieran McLaughlin (age 58 and pictured below) is wanted for questioning by the PSNI following yesterday’s murder of Barry McCrory at Derry’s Shipquay Street, a busy city centre thoroughfare.
Gardaí, backed up by the Irish Army, have been at a house where McLaughlin is understood to be hiding out for more than seven hours without a resolution.
Inside the last thirty minutes a helicopter and ambulance has arrived at the scene in the townland of Gortcormican.
In an unusual move, the PSNI released a photograph of 58 year old McLaughlin asking for the public’s assistance in locating him.
Members of the public were told not to approach the suspect.
