Two men dressed in black approached a house on Areema Drive in Dunmurry with the police saying they believe the victim was shot through the kitchen window of the property. 

The victim is currently in a stable condition in hospital.

In a separate incident in North Belfast, a man in his 20s was shot in the leg in Spamount Street in a paramiltary-shooting-style attack.
