26 November, 2015 - by Alex Maskey

Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has condemned those responsible for a gun attack on the PSNI in west Belfast. 

Mr Maskey said 

"Tonight's gun attack on the PSNI in the Rossnareen Avenue area of west Belfast was totally wrong and I condemn it outright. 

"This attack happened in the early evening in a busy area and could have killed or seriously injured anyone in the area at the time. 

"Thankfully no one was injured but it was a frightening experience for people in the area. 

"I spoke to people living nearby following this attack and they are rightly angry at what happened.

"Those responsible have nothing to offer the community, they do not speak for local people and need to end these reckless and futile actions immediately. 

"We will not allow them to drag us back to the past."
