Two hunted after teenager shot

Detectives are hunting two men in Northern Ireland after a teenager was shot in the buttock.

The attack happened in the New Barnsley Gardens area of Belfast at around 2:30pm this afternoon, investigators said.

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