Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has said that local people are shocked and angry after a man has been murdered in a gun attack in Lenadoon last night.
The West Belfast MP said:
“Yesterday evening local man Kieran Wylie was murdered in a brutal and shameful attack in Lenadoon.
“My thoughts are with the family and friends of the man killed in this brutal attack.
“Local people are shocked and angry that anyone would carry out an attack like this when the community and the emergency services are facing the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Those involved in this act have absolutely no place in our community, they must cease their anti-community activities and get off the back of the people of West Belfast.
“I condemn those responsible and they must be brought before the courts.
“A police operation is ongoing in the Lenadoon area and I would appeal to anyone with information on this shooting to bring it forward to the PSNI.”
