Partner of Buncrana shooting victim believes gunmen shot to kill

The partner of murdered Derry man Andrew Allen has said she believes the gunmen meant to kill him.

The father of two from the Top of the Hill area of Derry died after a number of shots were fired through the window of his Buncrana home a week ago.

Dissident republicans have been blamed for his death.

Speaking to the BBC, Arlene Farrelly said she believes the gunshots were never meant as a warning, and the gunmen could have killed everyone in the house.

Ms Farrelly said that the gunmen only shot through the bedroom window because they couldn't get in.

She added that Andy's  6-year-old son sometimes stays down and he could have been in the room when the shots were fired.
