The man, thought to be in his 50s, was attacked in his home and shot in the stomach and knee. He is believed to be in a serious condition.
Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I am appalled at this incident. People have the right to live peacefully in their homes, without fear of being attacked.
“I completely condemn the actions of those who carried out this attack. They cannot justify their actions and will not be allowed to drag our society back to the dark days of the past.
“My thoughts are with the victim and his family and I urge anyone with information to come forward and contact the police immediately. Those behind this incident must be taken off our streets immediately.”
