Kelly Slams Ardoyne shooting

12 May, 2009 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has condemned the shooting of a 30-year-old  man in his home last night.   "I condemn the brutal shooting of a man in front of his wife and child in his home in Ardoyne last night," said Gerry Kelly.

"This is the latest in a series of shootings in Ardoyne over recent months.

"One man, who was critically injured last month in a shooting outside his home, remains in hospital after spending weeks in intensive care.

"I am calling on those who have admitted these shootings to desist. No one has the right to use guns in this community and these groups have no support in this community.

“The people of Ardoyne have suffered enough over the last 40 years without guns being turned on local people. This should stop and stop now before someone is killed."
