Work at the Westbury Cemetery came to a temporary halt this morning after a worker was shot.
It was around 8:30 a.m. when Andrew Knight, who was cutting the grass, heard shots ring out before feeling a burning sensation. He was shot under his left buttock.
He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in a private vehicle and underwent surgery.
Police Public Relations Officer Inspector David Welch said Knight was in stable condition.
Investigations are continuing.
