The teenager was shot in the leg in his west Belfast home on Thursday morning.

The PSNI said up to three men forced their way into a house in the Whitecliff Parade area of Ballymurphy shortly after 9.30 am.

The men stormed up the stairs and shot the teenager in the leg.

His attackers then made off in a white-coloured Ford Fiesta car which was later found burned out in the Beechview Park area.

Detectives at Grovesnor Road CID have appealed for anyone who witnessed either the shooting or the burning of the vehicle to contact them.
