PSNI chief say UVF tried to murder Jemma McGrath

THE PSNI Chief Constable says members of the UVF shot a 24-year-old woman in east Belfast.

Care worker Jemma McGrath was shot a number of times at her home in September when she opened the door.

Mr Baggott confirmed for the first time on Thursday that police believed members of the UVF were behind the attack.

He told the Policing Board it was thought “individuals linked to the east Belfast UVF” were to blame, but it had not been sanctioned by its leadership.

Miss McGrath was shot in the lower abdomen, hips and knees in the attack at her home off Beersbridge Road.

The attack was widely condemned by politicians from across the political spectrum.
