He managed to flee the property and call for an ambulance after being kicked, punched and shot with the imitation firearm.

Paramedics took him to Queen’s Medical Centre where he was treated for bruising and two pellet wounds in his back.

Police were called and officers attended the house where the incident was reported to have taken place.

Inside were three males – a 40-year-old man and two 15-year-old boys – and all three were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

A BB gun was also seized from the address.
