Cllr Yvonne Boyle said: “I am shocked at this despicable attack. This was a callous attack that occurred in a very residential area.
“Guns have no place on our streets. It is clear that those responsible for this shooting have no regard for the well-being of others.
“I hope this victim will be able to make a full recovery following the injuries he sustained.
“If anybody has any information about this shooting then I would urge them to contact the police.”
