The schoolchild was hit in the foot after a gunman opened fire outside an address in St Cuthbert’s Road, at around 9.40pm.

A 48-year-old woman was also shot in the chest and leg.

Both were taken to a hospital where their condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

Two residents told the Times they heard five or six shots followed by screaming and shouting.
