A man was injured in the leg during a paramilitary-style shooting in west Belfast

The 18-year-old was attacked in the Pembroke Loop area of Dunmurry on Saturday.

He was shot twice and was treated in hospital, police said.

A detective said: "This was a brutal and despicable attack, which has left the young victim with potentially life-changing injuries and it is yet another example of how criminal groups seek to control communities through fear and violence."
