Man due in court over gun charge

By John Porter

A 22-year-old man is set to appear in court this morning accused of possessing a firearm, threats to kill and numerous other offences following an incident in Lurgan over the weekend.

On Saturday, a 19-year-old was threatened with a gun in the Hill Street area of the Co Armagh town just after 5pm.

The teenager managed to escape uninjured and a short time later police arrested a man.

He was charged with possession of a firearm with intent, threats to kill, assault on police, resisting police, criminal damage and possessing a medicinal product without prescription.

He was scheduled to appear at Lisburn Magistrates Court.
