A murder investigation has been launched after a 28-year-old man died following a shooting in south Belfast.
The gun attack took place in a house at Walmer Street in the Ormeau Road area shortly before 22:45 GMT on Thursday night.
Police said it was believed four men were involved. The man’s partner and a nine-year-old child were in the house. Police said the man was taken to hospital, but later died from his injuries.
Part of Walmer Street and neighbouring streets have been closed off and police forensic teams are at the scene.
Police have appealed for information about the shooting.
Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness condemned those responsible for the murder and said it was “terrible news”.
