22 January, 2017 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has condemned tonight's gun attack on a PSNI officer in north Belfast. 

Mr Kelly said; 

"I totally condemn this gun attack on a PSNI officer in north Belfast tonight. 

"It is my understanding that a police officer has been shot in a drive by shooting on the Crumlin Road and that his injuries are not believed to be life threatening. 

"I hope that the injured officer will make a full and speedy recovery. 

"Those responsible for this attack are the same people who are attacking the local community. They have absolutely nothing to offer society and need to call a halt to these activities immediately. 

"I would call on anyone with information on this incident to bring it forward to the PSNI."
