A 40-year-old man arrested over the shooting of a teenager in west Belfast has been released on police bail.

He was held the early hours of this morning on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent - quizzed about a gun attack in the New Barnsley Gardens area of the city at around 2:30pm yesterday afternoon.

The 19-year-old victim was shot in the buttock and taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries, which are not believed to be life threatening.
