Murder inquiry launched over N.Ireland shooting, politicians condemn attack
NO REPORTER NARRATION.
Police in Northern Ireland launched a murder inquiry on Friday (April 19) after a 29-year-old woman was shot and killed during rioting in Londonderry.
DUP leader Arlene Foster condemned the incident, and said the attack was on "everybody in Northern Ireland".
Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hamilton said police believed militant nationalists were responsible for the violence, in which a gunman fired shots towards police, wounding off-duty journalist Lyra McKee.
McKee later died in hospital.
Hamilton said police are treating the incident as "a terrorist act." Rioting erupted in the Irish nationalist Creggan area of the city late on Thursday (April 18) following a raid by police, who said they were trying to prevent militant attacks planned for the weekend.
At least 50 petrol bombs were thrown and two cars set on fire.
