PSNI are investigating a gun attack believed to be linked to the internal feud within the UDA.
A number of shots were fired through the window of a house in Carrickfergus early today.
The incident follows a pipe-bomb attack in the town on Saturday which has also been linked to the feud between the mainstream UDA and a breakaway faction in south-east Antrim.
The target of last night's pipe-bombing was linked to the breakaway group.
