Three Charged With Terror Offence Over Attempted Murder Of Senior Police Detective

  • by

Detectives investigating the shooting of a senior police detective in Northern Ireland have charged three men with possessing articles for use in terrorism.

Police said it was “in connection with the claim of responsibility made following the attack” on Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell, who was shot several times in Omagh, Co Tyrone on 22 February.

The men, aged 23, 25 and 36, are due to appear in court on Friday.

It comes after seven men were charged with attempted murder in connection with the shooting.

DCI Caldwell, who suffered “life-changing” injuries in the attack, was released from hospital in April.

He was shot while putting balls in a car, after coaching a youth football team, in front of his young son and other children.

The senior officer made his first public appearance since the attack in May when he attended a garden party in Co Down with the King and Queen.
