Shooting Victim Assaults Paramedic

A man has assaulted a paramedic who was treating him following a paramilitary-style attack in north Belfast.

The man had been shot in the Jamaica Court area of Ardoyne at about midnight on Thursday. The emergency services said a paramedic arrived at the scene, but the 24-year-old victim initially refused treatment.

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service said that, while the crew was trying to reason with the man, he then assaulted a paramedic at the scene.

He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment to a leg wound, which is not believed to be a life threatening injury.
