The 21-year-old was found with a gunshot wound and died at the scene shortly before 11pm.

“This incident took place at a busy time of the evening when many people will have been going out, coming home or driving through Comeragh Road, Barton Road or Palliser Road.

“I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the area in the half an hour period from 22.13. Did you see a group of people or an altercation? Do you have dashcam footage?

“Detectives are still in the area and I urge anyone with information to approach those officers direct or contact us by phone or online.”

Houses on the street are listed anywhere between £450,000 to up to £2.75million, with recent properties selling for more than £1m.
