Four masked men, two believed to be armed, entered a home in Kingsbury Gardens at around 10.45pm on Thursday.
An 11-year-old girl, a 36-year-old woman and a man in his 20s were also in the property as the gang beat the 45-year-year-old victim and shot him repeatedly in the leg. He has been taken to hospital where his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
John Dallat, SDLP MLA for the area, described those who carried out the attack as thugs.
"This is the handy work of loyalist paramilitaries who continually seek to assert their authority over the lives of innocent people," he said.
"They didn't care if that person loses a limb.
"They're just a scourge on society in Coleraine. We have areas where paramilitaries, in their ancient nostalgia, still believe they control. That has to end."
He said it is the latest attack on the family, who he said "have been to hell and back".
"They had their house shot up before, they've been pipe-bombed, and they've had their car burned. But I think that last night really took it to its limits."
