First Minister, the Rt. Hon. Arlene Foster and the deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness have condemned the murder of a man in the Poleglass area of Belfast last night.
The Ministers said: "We unreservedly condemn the murder of a man shot dead in his home in Poleglass last night.
"This savage killing is senseless and has achieved nothing. The perpetrators care only for themselves.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the man's family at this time and we urge anyone with any information to bring it to the PSNI immediately.”
