Attwood: Turf Lodge shooting can never be justified

SDLP West Belfast MLA Alex Attwood has described a shooting in the Turf Lodge area of West Belfast as barbaric. A young man was shot in both legs around 21:20 last night in a paramilitary style punishment shooting.

"I again condemn the latest punishment attack in Turf Lodge last night. These are barbaric attacks and they can never be justified. They can leave people disabled for life and risk death.”

“There is a very small number who seek to gather support by becoming enforcers and the community must stand against this very small number of individuals. They seek only to drag us back to the past and its abuses of rights. They must be resisted at all times.”
