The people behind this killing are criminals and will further no cause through this shooting. Whoever carried out this act has nothing to offer the community and have no role to play in our future.
Dialogue not destruction is the way forward and while there may be a small minority of people who are trying to promote division and heighten tensions, let's be very clear, they will fail.The peace process is rock solid and all right thinking people across the community oppose and reject the actions of the people behind this murder.

The Duchess of Cambridge relegated her husband to the role of an onlooker when she turned down his offer to jump into the back seat - of a fighter jet.
Yesterday she suggested he try an alpaca toupee, and this morning she took control of a sophisticated fighter plane, sitting in the pilot's front seat.
The Duke had made an offer to his wife he believed she could not refuse, asking: "Do you fancy jumping in the back?" But the Duchess was not about to miss the opportunity to see for herself the multimillion-pound plane's cockpit.
