29-year-old journalist, , was killed tonight in Northern Ireland, in what police are calling a “terrorist incident.” What a terrible loss.
Devasating & deeply concerning news about the killing of investigative journalist while reporting on the violence in Derry. Followed her work & chatted for years, such a needless waste of a bright spark.
Early story on the death of Lyra McKee. She was so accomplished at such a young age, what a loss.
Our febrile political atmosphere has led to tensions in Northern Ireland. Last night someone I actually know from journalism was shot & killed in Derry: . An incredible young journalist & editor. It’s utterly heartbreaking. RIP Lyra

No words. Adding to the chorus of rage and love for the wonderful, kind, hilarious . She had everything to live for and deserved so much better. A huge loss to Northern Ireland and to all of those who rightly loved her.
This is devastating. I'll never forget the furvour in which Lyra spoke of local, investigative reporting. She inspired me with her fierce voice & love of home, the kind that drove her to critique it. This is a loss for Derry, for NI, for the UK, for us all
