A 20-year-old man was in hospital last night after being shot in both legs in an attack in west Belfast.

It happened in the Ardmonagh Parade area in the west of the city at around 10.30pm. Police arrived at the scene shortly after the incident. As police continued their investigation residents came out of their homes.

One resident told the Belfast Telegraph she did not hear the shooting but was awoken from her sleep by screams.

The man was rushed from the scene to hospital by ambulance. His condition was unknown last night.

Police inspector James Murphy has appealed for anyone with information to contact his officers on 101.

Or alternatively anonymous information can be given to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
