Shots fired at house in Bangor

Shots were fired into a house in Northern Ireland last night, police said.

No-one was in the home in Ballyree Drive, Bangor, when the incident happened shortly before 8pm.

Minor damage was caused to the property, which is in the town's Bloomfield estate.

North Down Assembly member Alex Easton condemned the attack.

"I am shocked that there has been a shooting on this estate," said the DUP representative.

"I call on everyone as chairman of the District Policing Partnership to work with the police.

"This estate has a great track record for community work and has a positive reputation it has many wonderful people and that is why this is so disturbing.

"I am glad that no-one has been injured and I have been liaising with the Police this evening they merit our full support.

"Let me be unequivocal, there is no use whatsoever for guns to be used in our community and I call on those responsible for this shooting to immediately desist from their activity."
