A 39-year-old man was shot in the arm and leg during a paramilitary-style attack in west Belfast last night.
The victim was attacked by up to five masked men and dragged into an alleyway in the Iris Link area of Twinbrook, shortly before 9pm.
He was taken to hospital for treatment, and detectives have appealed for anybody with information to contact them.
