The 25-year-old was attacked by three people in the Ardcarn Park area shortly before 9pm on Monday.

He was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital for treatment where his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

SDLP Newry and Armagh MLA Dominic Bradley condemned those behind the attack.

"No one has the right to take the law into their own hands in so-called 'punishment shootings' which by this time should be consigned to the past.

"The police service is there to enforce the law and that has to be done in open court through evidence gathered," he added.

A PSNI spokesperson said the investigation is still in its early stages and a motive for the shooting has yet to be established.
