Anna Lo MLA said: “I am sickened that such a horrendous attack was carried out. This was a callous and brutal crime that was carried out by a bunch of thugs that nobody wants on our streets.
“My thoughts are with the victim and I would like to wish him a speedy recovery from his injuries.
“If anybody has any information about this shooting then I would urge them to contact the police. These people must be brought before the courts and punished for their crimes.”
