Henry McDonaldA Northern Ireland police officer escaped injury in a shooting on Wednesday night in the Springhill area of Bangor, County Down.
Security sources told the Guardian that the attack was a murder bid by dissident republican paramilitaries.
Local reports said the target was a plainclothes policeman who worked in the Police Service of Northern Ireland's personal protection unit, which guards politicians, judges and other VIPs in the province. They said the officer was not originally from the Bangor area and may come from west Belfast.
