Detective Inspector Mick Millar, who is heading the investigation, said: "We understand that the victims were approached by possibly five black youths believed to be in their teens and that a verbal confrontation took place between them.
"The suspects were aggressive towards the victims and attempted to rob them.
"One suspect produced a handgun and fired several shots at the victims from a close proximity. All five suspects then made off, two of which were on bicycles, one of these is described as a red 'BMX' type bike."
