Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Jennifer McCann has slammed those behind the killing of a man on the Springfield Road today.
Speaking today Ms McCann said:
“This killing was in broad daylight in a very busy part of the Springfield Road.
“Those behind it had no consideration for anyone in this community except themselves and their own criminal agenda.
“They have shot a man dead and endangered anyone in the immediate vicinity.
“There is now a family in mourning and a community traumatised by this shooting.
“It will not go unnoticed that with sadness, at Easter time as republicans gather to commemorate their patriot dead, that there are criminals on the streets masquerading as republicans for their own ends.
“This community does not want them. They need to listen to this community, stop these senseless actions and go away.
“I would appeal to anyone with any information to bring it to the PSNI.”
