The Real IRA has admitted it shot an off-duty police officer in Londonderry last Thursday.
Forensic scientists at the scene where the 43-year-old was shot
The 43-year-old man was dropping his child off at school. He suffered injuries to his face and arm, and is still being treated in hospital.
The dissident republican group said in a statement two of its members attacked the Catholic officer's car as it travelled along Bishop Street.
The Real IRA was behind the 1998 Omagh bombing which killed 29 people.
