Nuala McAllister justice West Belfast

Alliance MLA Nuala McAllister has condemned those behind the fatal shooting of a man in West Belfast.

The victim was shot by two masked gunmen in the Donegal Celtic social club off the Suffolk Road this afternoon.

“I condemn this sickening attack, which has left the entire city shocked, particularly as it took place in the middle of the afternoon in public,” said Ms McAllister, an Alliance Policing Board representative.

“My thoughts are with the loved ones of the victim, who have been left grieving following this brutal act, carried out by those who don’t speak for anyone in the community. Guns have no place in our society and the culprits need to be taken off our streets immediately.

“I appeal to anyone with information on this incident to take it to police right away.”
