Webb shocked by second paramilitary style shooting in North Belfast

Alliance North Belfast representative Cllr Billy Webb has expressed his shock at the paramilitary style shooting of man in Glenview Court, off the Oldpark Road by two masked men. The man was shot in both legs in the early hours of Tuesday morning and was later taken to hospital. This follows a similar shooting in North Belfast at the weekend which the Continuity IRA claimed responsibility for.

Cllr Billy Webb said: “I am shocked and outraged at this shooting. I just can not understand the thinking of those who carried out this attack. This shooting has no place in our society.

“This was a callous and brutal attack on man in his home. I am sure that it was a very traumatic experience for this man and I hope he is able to make a swift recovery.

“If anybody has any information about this shooting then they must contact the police. These thugs must be severely punished by the courts for their mindless actions.”
