Police are investigating after a man was shot in both legs in a paramilitary style shooting in north Belfast.

The 30-year-old man was shot in both legs in the Velsheda Court area on Monday night.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Sinn Fein councillor Gerry McCabe has condemned the incident.

He said: "There can be no place for these type of actions in our society.

“The people responsible need to end their campaign against the community.
