Plea over car used in Buncrana murder

By Donna Deeney

Gardai have made a direct appeal to people in Londonderry and Buncrana who may have seen the car used in the murder of Andrew Allen.

Mr Allen was shot dead in his home in Buncrana, Co Donegal, where he had been living after being ordered out of his Waterside home by Republican Action Against Drugs.

Shots were fired through the window of his bedroom on February 9, killing him.

The lead officer in the investigation wants to hear from anyone who noticed a distinctive car used in the days before the murder took place on February 9.

They want to hear from anyone who saw a grey Vauxhall Cavalier, registration SJI 2117, distinctively clean with a tow hitch, a sunroof and missing a front wheel trim.

Detective Inspector Pat O'Donnell said: “We believed it was parked in a residential area in Derry city. We want to hear from anyone who noticed it parked near where they would normally park their car and would know that it didn't belong.”
