Teen shot in Belfast 'paramilitary attack'

A teenager has been taken to hospital after an apparent paramilitary shooting.

The 19-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to his leg during the incident in west Belfast last night.

A police spokesman said it appeared to be a "paramilitary-style shooting".

A 23-year-old man suffered a leg injury during the same incident, which is thought to have taken place near garages at Culmore Gardens at 8pm.

Police said the second man's injury is not believed to be serious.

It is not a gunshot wound and the cause is still being established.

Officers have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
