It is the second gun attack in the area in one day.
The 38-year-old was shot once in the right leg in an alleyway in the Ardmonagh Gardens area at around 8.10pm on Thursday.
He is being treated in hospital for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.
Police are describing the gun attack as a paramilitary style shooting.
Investigating officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Just streets away, on Thursday morning, a man escaped injury after being shot at in his Avoca Close home.
Two intruders burst into the property at around 9.30am.
The assailants made off in the direction of the Upper Springfield Road.
On Friday, a PSNI spokesman said that detectives are investigating all lines of enquiry.
Paul Maskey, Sinn Féin's West Belfast MP, said gangs using guns within the community have nothing to offer.
"There is no place for these gun gangs in our community and the people do not want them. Some people are masquerading as republicans when in fact they are involved in every shape of criminal activity.
"They have no concern whatsoever about the well-being of this community.
"This shooting damages the community and the people behind them need to stop," he added.
