A man has been shot dead in Belfast in what is believed to be a 'paramilitary-style' attack.
Father-of-four Michael McGibbon, 33, was shot several times in an alleyway on Friday night in the nationalist republican Ardoyne area.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said Mr McGibbon reported to them that two men had called at his house in the Crumlin Road on Thursday night and demanded he come out to meet them which he refused to do.
At this moment in time we are still making inquiries and it is very early in our investigation as to what exactly has been said and if any paramilitary organisation is involved.
I would say this has all the hallmarks of a paramilitary organisation and that is our main line of inquiry we are following at this stage.
Mr McGibbon was shot three times in the leg in an alleyway at Butler Place shortly after 10pm on Friday, the PSNI said.
Police said his wife tried to save him before he was taken to the city's Royal Victoria Hospital where he later died after undergoing surgery.
Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers said: "This callous and shocking murder appears to have the hallmarks of the paramilitary-style assaults which too often ruin lives and scar Northern Ireland. My sympathy is with Mr McGibbon's young family."

Northern Ireland have reached their best-ever Fifa ranking of 26th.
Michael O'Neill's side, who are preparing for the 2016 European Championship, will be boosted by a climb of two places in the official FIFA rankings.
The move continues the upward trend that Northern Ireland have experienced since 2013, with Scotland concurrently rising five places to 40th, although there was no good news for England, Wales or the Republic of Ireland.
England dropped a place to 10th, with the Republic slipping to 31st, while the biggest slide among the three comes for Wales, who fall seven places to 24th despite qualifying for Euro 2016.
Elsewhere, Belgium's five-month stay at the top of the FIFA men's rankings comes to an end, with the Red Devils usurped by 2014 World Cup runners-up Argentina.
