The Derry Journal reports that Mr Allen's family are not happy with how police on both sides of the border have handled the murder investigation.
His girlfriend Arlene says she cannot understand why no description of the gunman has been released.
She said that since the gardai or police have not given out her description she will. Arlene says the gunman was arounf 5 foot 8 inches tall and wearing a black baseball cap and dark clothes. She says he was holding what appeared to be a sawn-off shotgun.
Arlene added that since the shooting last week, gardai have not contacted the family.
Andrew's uncle Tony added that the police were, in his opinion, useless in dealing with groups carrying out these attacks.
