9 May, 2016 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has condemned the shooting of a young man in the New Lodge area tonight.

Gerry Kelly said:

“A young man was shot in the New Lodge tonight only hours after the shooting of another man in the early hours of this morning.

“I condemn those responsible for both these attacks.

“Two young men have already been killed in these type of attacks in North Belfast over recent months. 

“The people behind these attacks have been rejected by the people of the North Belfast at the ballot box. Only last week the people endorsed once again those who support the peace process and who are moving society forward.

“The people of North Belfast will not let these armed gangs drag us back to the past. 

 “Anyone with information on this incident should bring it forward to the PSNI."
