Gang shoots man in leg
A 41-year-old man has been injured in a shooting in north Belfast.

The man was treated in hospital for a bullet wound to his calf following the incident on Monday night.

The victim was forced into the back of a van by a number of masked men as he was walking in the Queens Park area of Glengormley, on the outskirts of Belfast.

He was then taken to an alleyway in the Mount Vernon area of Shaw Road where he was shot.

Police believe paramilitaries were involved in the incident.
