There was a builders yard just up from the corner of the Falls/Whiterock then an empty plot behind a corrugated fence. After this there was a tiny electrical repair shop then a sweet shop followed by a row of about ten houses before you came to Fort Pegasus.@Bubbles_Barker will know the details much better than I, but in the killing to which I referred earlier, ISTR one or other of the ambushed vehicle's occupants had an SLR loaded, with a full mag, but it couldn't be got at, because it was stowed in a footwell, under a seat.
Driver having been fatally shot, car crashed at the junction, leaving passenger trapped by his feet, and unable to arm himself, whilst at same time taking multiple rounds to the body.
If memory serves, he managed to vacate the car, and struggled, bleeding heavily from multiple GSW, back up Whiterock Road, trying to reach the gate of McCrory Park base, about 300(?) metres away.
He was - as I recall the story, though I never saw a report on the incident - pulled into one or more doorways along the way (not that there were very many in that vicinity as I recall it) by locals thinking to succour a Brave Republican under attack by Tyrannical Brits, only then to spot the DPM trousers and army boots below the civvy top, at which discovery they promptly hoofed him back into the street for the 'RA to continue their very inefficient attempt at a double murder.
I believe he made it to the gate, and survived, unlike his oppo.
I can remember the shooting as a schoolboy living nearby, if memory serves me right it was the Rodney/St James’s boys that took over the house to set up the shoot with an element from Beechmout/lower falls involved.
