Hendron condemns West Belfast attack

Alliance Representative Maíre Hendron has condemned an incident in which a man was shot in the leg in West Belfast last night. A 23-year-old was shot once in the right leg in the Glen Road area shortly before 11pm on Tuesday night.

Cllr Maíre Hendron said: “This was an appalling attack and I cannot fathom the mindset of someone who can carry out an attack of this nature.

“This would have been a deeply traumatic incident and I want to wish the man who was attacked a quick recovery.

“This type of incident is totally unacceptable and people want Northern Ireland to be free from fear and intimidation. I call on anyone who can help police to catch those involved in this to contact them immediately.”
