Arnon Street Killings: In Belfast, Northern Ireland, six Catholic civilians are murdered by a gang of police officers, possibly the Ulster Special Constabulary or the Royal Irish Constabulary. This is a retaliation against randomly chosen Catholics for the murder of an RIC officer by someone in the Irish Republican Army.

Technically the Irish War of Independence is supposed to be over, but IRA has actually been escalating the violence in their guerrilla war. One of the consequences is an increasingly violent backlash, including this incident.
