The Secretary of State appealed for information following the shooting of a husband and wife last night.


Condemning the shooting of a husband and wife in their home in West Belfast on Thursday 12 January, Secretary of State, James Brokenshire said:

This attack could have resulted in two deaths. There is no place for this violence in our society. This couple have been subjected to a brutal attack in their own home. We can all play a part in shaping the type of society we live in.

If you know anything about this attack please share that information with police and play a part in bringing those responsible before the courts.
