After earlier appealing for calm when a number of shots were fired in the Irish nationalist Creggan area of the city, police confirmed shortly after midnight that the 29-year-old woman had died.

Supt Alan Hutton of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said officers had responded to reports that a member of the public had been injured.

It happened during rioting following police searches in Derry's Creggan area on Thursday night.

Ms O'Neill had earlier posted videos of police vehicles being pelted with what she said were dozens of petrol bombs, bricks, bottles and fireworks.

"We are treating this as a terrorist incident and we have launched a murder inquiry".

Police have cordoned off the Fanad Drive area of Creggan. The violence is being blamed on dissident republicans, who oppose the peace process.

PSNI superintendent Alan Hutton said: "We are now responding to reports that a member of the public has been injured and I would appeal for calm".

Mark H Durkan, SDLP MLA for Foyle, said he was left "heartbroken and angry" by the killing.

"The thoughts and prayers of the city are with the young woman's family and friends, may she rest in peace".
