Cllr Catherine Curran said: “These are both appalling incidents and my thoughts are with the man injured in the shooting and the police officer injured in the attack.
“These despicable acts of violence have absolutely no place in our society and people in the area are shocked and appalled at both incidents.
“The police carry out very important work and it is disgraceful that they have come under attack as they investigated this shooting. The police protect the whole community and display massive courage in doing so. They should not have to face attacks like this when they are going about their crucial work.”
