Gun­men on Bray streets

Bray People - - Bray People -

‘That’s the wrong fella,’ the driver of the ve­hi­cle was heard shout­ing, be­fore the gun­man jumped back in to the car which sped off. Gar­daí said co com­plaint had been made.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Frank Keenaghan con­demned the gun­shots fired in Led­widge Cres­cent. ‘Thank­fully no­body in­side was in­jured. It could have been a far more se­ri­ous in­ci­dent.’

‘I thought that the tyre of a car had burst,’ said one Led­widge Cres­cent woman who heard the loud bangs. ‘I thought noth­ing of it but just lay back down and went to sleep. My son phoned me in the morn­ing to tell me what had hap­pened.’

A woman, whose el­derly mother lives in Led­widge Cres­cent, said there were a num­ber of older peo­ple liv­ing in the area who were now very ner­vous af­ter hear­ing that a gun was used in the nor­mally quiet es­tate.

Gar­daí have launched an en­quiry into thein­ci­dent. Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion can con­tact Bray Garda Sta­tion on 01 6665300.
