A police spokesman said a number of shots were fired at a car in Church Street on Sunday morning.

It is understood the dead man was driving the vehicle. Three men and two women have been arrested in connection with the incident.

The Police Ombudsman's office has been informed about the shooting and is carrying out an investigation.

Part of the main Belfast to Newcastle Road in the town has been closed.

Why is it I keep seeing something strange about this statement?

I wonder will they be subject to the same treatment as Lee Clegg? Methinks one rule for the now castrated PSNI and one for the army.

I wait for the results of the investigation with baited breath :roll: :roll:

There is no mention if anything was seized from the Vehicle. Past incidents has suggested that there was specific intel relating to certain passengers etc

...Em it happened a few hours ago. Why should we expect to hear about it automatically? I'm sure it'll all come out in time.

Are you seriously expecting all the details now?? Obviously there will now be an investigation by the medi... the Ombudsman!

Why do you always type in bold?? It is really annoying reading all your posts in bold.

"A spokesman for the PSNI said a number
of shots had been discharged by
officers. Initial reports suggest the
PSNI were investigating reports that a
stolen car had been seen in the area"

A VCP was established due to a report of a stolen car in vicinity. Circumstances led to the officers engaging the suspect vehicle outside the police station and fatally wounding the driver. There were a further five individuals detained, 3 males and 2 females.

I drove past on the way to Killinchy at about 1230; huge queues of cars on both sides of the town, and still there at 3. The polizei also had their helicopter floating about. Rumour said that the car had failed to stop at a VCP.

Which side of the town was it? Me think's it was on the Belfast side on that long,wide fast stretch of road with the school & garage on the left as you come in from the country from Comber

No, it was on the road going to Newcastle. The taped-off section started at the roundabout at the top of the town.

Spike, you could just tell us all you know your way around - it'd be a lot simpler.

So you know you're way around. Brilliant. What bearing does it have on the fact that a car with 6 people in it
got shot at and only one was killed/injured?
Bold in the above is mine.

You sound disappointed by that.. WTF?

My the medium of email is thoroughly shit isn't it? No matter what you argument some eedjit will always take
it the wrong way. Funnily enough ytomk, NO, I'm not disappointed. I am however strangely dubious as to how
a PSNI copper has managed to shoot the driver of a moving vehicle full of people, leaving the other 5 unharmed.
Last time I looked, a vehicle running a checkpoint wasn't exactly an exemplary target. So take your bold type and
poke it up yer arse ya cock.

Good point, I was only asking for clarification. No need to start a fight.
