Alliance Councillor Nuala McAllister has said that the people of North Belfast do not want to see guns return to the streets after a police officer was shot on the Crumlin Road.
Councillor McAllister, who represents North Belfast, said: “For too long North Belfast suffered at the hands of violent people who had no mandate whatsoever. The shooting of this police officer on the Crumlin Road is a sad reminder of the dark days the people of the area do not want to have return. These gunmen have no cause that can excuse their attempt to take a life and must be condemned by all.
“I hope the police officer has a full and speedy recovery and send him my best wishes. Anyone with information about this attack should pass it to the police on the 101 number or anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
