Shots fired after car fails to stop in Armagh

25 June 2005 14:48

Politicians in the North have criticised the British Army for firing shots at a car that failed to stop at a police checkpoint in the early hours of this morning.

Army officers were accompanying police on an anti drink-driving campaign in the Cullaville Road area of Crossmaglen in Co Armagh.

Dominic Bradley, the SDLP's Newry and Armagh MLA, said there were other means which could be deployed to deal the situation without resort to firearms.

The PSNI is seeking assistance in tracing a dark coloured Peugeot 406 which was involved in the incident.
