9 March, 2006

Sinn Féin West Belfast MLA Michael Ferguson has appealed for calm after the shooting of a teenager at the top of the Whiterock Road in West Belfast.

Mr Ferguson said:

"People are shocked and angry at this shooting of a teenager.

"I would appeal for calm and call on people to step back from what is already a tense situation in the area.

"There has already been one death in recent weeks and a number of attacks. This community has suffered enough. Those responsible should think about the consequence of their actions for this community."ENDS
