Yvonne Boyle, who lives near where the attack took place, said: “This was an absolutely sickening attack.
“We are trying to create a peaceful and hate-free society and such incidents have absolutely no place in Northern Ireland.
“The intent behind this attack was very clear and I am disgusted at the disregard to human life shown by the attacker.
“This incident take place in front of a backdrop of tribal politicians haggling and delaying progress in restoring devolution. We need the Assembly up and running to ensure stability and help implement a shared future.
“I appeal to anyone with information on this incident to contact police immediately.”
