Falls Road shooting condemned - Cllr Beattie

19 December, 2014


Sinn Féin Councillor Ciaran Beattie has slammed those behind the shooting last night at Thames Street.

Speaking today Cllr Beattie said:

“There is no place whatsoever for so-called punishment shootings in our society. This attack was carried out in a popular takeaway on the front of the Falls Road and those behind it cared nothing about the people working in the shop or using it.

“They represent no-one but themselves. The community know that these attacks are usually carried out by dissident organsiations for self-serving purposes.

“There are clearly other ways to deal with the issues affecting us all, both with the community and with the PSNI. Anyone who has any information on this attack should bring it forward.”
