A 23-year-old man is expected to appear in Craigavon Magistrates court this morning charged with possession of a firearm in suspicious circumstances and possession of ammunition in suspicious circumstances.

The man has been charged after detectives investigating a shooting incident in the Glasvey Drive area of West Belfast on February 23 made two arrests.

Detectives also recovered a firearm following a search of a property in West Belfast on the morning of February 29.

A 41-year-old woman has since been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
