THE PSNI have confirmed that the man murdered in Warrenpoint on Friday night was 37-year-old Wayne Boylan.

Detective Chief Inspector Geoff Boyce said: “It’s understood two men entered a property on Lower Dromore Road at around 7.30pm last night and fatally shot Mr Boylan.

"A 21 year old woman also sustained gunshot injuries and was taken to hospital where her condition this morning is believed to be critical.

"A motive for the incident has not yet been established and I am appealing for information. I would particularly like to hear from anyone who was in the area last night and who may have seen two men or any vehicles fleeing from the scene immediately after the shooting."

Major Investigation Team detectives can be contacted by calling 101, quoting reference 1115 18/01/19.”


Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
