The 27-year-old victim was with two of his friends when they were chased by a gang at about 9.45pm last night.
He was hit in the shoulder with a bullet before the trio found refuge in a shop.
But the armed group of suspects then opened fire into the shop and hit a member of staff, who fortunately did not require hospital treatment.
The suspects are thought to have fled in a silver saloon car.
