Shots have been fired at the windows of a house in Ballymena.

At around 2.20am on Sunday a number of shots were fired at the windows of an unoccupied house in the Fort View area of the town.

A red coloured Honda Accord car, believed to have been involved in the incident, was found burnt out on the Lisnevenagh Road a short time later.

Chief Inspector Natalie Wilson said: “This type of attack is totally unacceptable and there is no place for this type of activity in a civilised society. I know that the vast majority of people in Ballymena do not support those responsible.

“I want to reassure the Ballymena community that we are determined to tackle these criminal elements and as such we are committing additional resources over the next few nights. We will not accept this type of behaviour and I would ask for community support and information as we work to identify those responsible."

Anyone who was in the area of Fort View and who witnessed the shooting or anyone who was on the Lisnevenagh Road and witnessed the car being abandoned is asked to to contact CID in Ballymena on the non-emergency number 101.
