Police officer shot in Dungannon

The Real IRA have claimed responsibility for the attempted murder of the police officer in Londonderry last week. And UTV are now reporting that another police officer has been shot in Dungannon, County Tyrone. I’ll add more when it’s available. Some more detail here And according the BBC report, he was off-duty at the time of the attack. More here. Although I’m not convinced cancelling the DPP Dungannon Council meeting which was due to be held tonight in Dungannon Town Hall, and where SF were due to nominate their members to the local District Policing Partnership, is an appropriate response. Update the officer is now reported to be in a stable condition. Update 2 A man and woman are being questioned about the shooting.
