A MAN HAS been taken to hospital after he was shot in the leg last night while walking in a residential area.

The 35-year-old was attacked shortly after 10pm in the Glasvey Rise area of Dunmurry, between Belfast and Lisburn.

He was walking in the suburban area surrounded by parkland when shots were fired and he was wounded. The man was taken to hospital, where his injuries were described as serious but not life-threatening last night.

The PSNI have appealed for anyone with information, or any witnesses, to contact Lisburn police station or the independent Crimestoppers charity.
