McAllister condemns those behind Ardoyne shooting

Alliance North Belfast Councillor Nuala McAllister has utterly condemned those behind the shooting dead of a 33-year-old man in the area.

The victim was shot three times in the leg in an alleyway at Butler Place close to Elmfield Street in Ardoyne around 10.05pm yesterday (Friday). He was taken to hospital where he died from his injuries.

“My thoughts are with the loved ones of the man shot dead,” said Councillor McAllister.

“There can never be any excuse for carrying out such a heinous act and I utterly condemn the thugs behind it. Thanks to them, there is now a man lying dead and a family plunged into mourning.

“Violent attacks and murder have no place in our society. This was a brutal crime and those behind it need taken off our streets. Our entire community must unite against those who seek to drag us back to the bloody days of the past.

“I would urge anyone with any information at all to contact police immediately.”
