A man has been shot in both legs in an alleyway in west Belfast.

Police received a report of a shooting in the Shaw’s road area around 8pm on Saturday (August 30).

A PSNI spokesman said a man in his 20s “received injuries to his legs and is being treated in hospital”.

He said his injuries are not believed to be life threatening at this time.

“The investigation is at a very early stage and I would ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity to contact CID at Woodbourne on the non-emergency number 101.”
