Shots fired at police in Derry

Police officers in the North have come under attack in Derry.

Several shots were fired at officers as they attended the scene of a stolen car in the Glen Road area of the city last night.

The PSNI says it was a clear attempt to kill a police officer and that it was very fortunate that no one was injured.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the attack to come forward.

Local Councillor Mark H. Durkan attended the scene of the shooting, he says it is lucky no one was killed or seriously injured:
