Ombudsman to probe fatal shooting

The police ombudsman is investigating after a man was shot dead at a police checkpoint in County Down Sunday. Media reports are sketchy and even a day later say only that the police believe a suspected stolen car was heading towards the town. Shots were then fired at the driver as he remained in the car. The three men and two women travelling with the victim were arrested. Local DUP councillor, Jim Wells said he wanted to assure local people it wasn’t a “terrorist incident”.
