25 October, 2014 - by Fra McCann

Sinn Féin West Belfast MLA Fra McCann has expressed his condolences to the family of  Edward Gibson who died following a shooting close to Divis Tower on Friday evening.

Fra McCann said:

"I extend my sympathy to the family of Edward Gibson and call on anyone with the slightest piece of information to come forward. 

"Those responsible have nothing to offer our community who wish to move on to a better and peaceful future.  

“This shooting took place in broad daylight in a very busy area around Divis Tower. Those responsible have no consideration for anyone in this community.

“There is now a family in mourning and a community traumatised by this shooting. 

“I would appeal to anyone with any information to bring it to the PSNI.”
