Detective Inspector John Fitzgerald from our Firearms Investigation Team said: “We’re working to piece together exactly what happened and so are keen to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of Stanley Road and Pansy Street around midnight and saw or heard anything, either the shooting itself or any people making away from the area, and vehicle details.
“Recent days have seen a number of firearms removed from the streets, and recent months a downturn in these types of incidents. To have such success it is absolutely vital that we get all information from those communities who feel the impact of gun crime, so we can bring those responsible to justice.
