The man was shot dead in Glenbawn Avenue in Poleglass around 8pm on Tuesday. It was the second shooting in Poleglass in just over a year.
“This is a shocking incident, which will have been particularly devastating for a family. They have now been plunged into grief and despair by the actions of criminals who represent nobody. My thoughts are with the victim’s family at this difficult time.
“I utterly condemn this shooting in the strongest possible terms and appeal for anyone with information on it or those behind it to contact the police immediately. While those responsible are free on our streets, the community is not safe.”
