In the shadow of the gunman thumbnail

SINISTER footage has emerged of a masked man pointing a gun out the window of a house at a pre-Twelfth Church parade in Randalstown.
Sunday's annual parade saw brethren from Randalstown District LOL No 22 and members of two local bands taking part in a church service and act of Remembrance.
As the bands and the brethren - including young children - made their way down Station Road, watched by spectators, they were unaware of a more sinister set of eyes trained upon them.
Video footage, which has spread on social media, shows a man in a beret and camouflage jacket with his face obscured by a scarf and sunglasses, raising what looks like an assault rifle before training it on those marching.
Watching from a house on the route, he is being filmed as he appears to cock the rifle.
As the camera pans back towards the parade going past the house, he points the weapon in its direction before a disturbing 'click' - believed to be the trigger being pulled - can be heard off-camera.
