Rubber Bullet

A hard rubber bullet for a riot gun used especially by military personnel and law enforcement officers in crowd control.

The first death to result from its use occurred in April 1972, when Francis Rowntree, an 11-year old Cathlic boy, was shot in the head by a British soldier at close range in Belfast.

Seventeen people have died as a direct result of, or due to injuries sustained by, these rounds in Northern Ireland since 1969. A new type of projectile named the plastic bullet or plastic baton round was introduced in 1972; initially used alongside the rubber bullet, it eventually replaced it.
