Stephen Farry: “The thoughts and prayers of people right across the community in Northern Ireland will be with the family of this brave officer.
“This was a most despicable and cowardly attack. It is more than just an attack on an individual police officer but an attack on the entire community. In turn, the entire community will be united in rejecting and thwarting those men of violence who are seeking to drag us back to the dark past from which society is emerging.”
“If anybody has any information about this murder then I would urge them to contact the police.”
