Detectives are investigating a flurry of shots being fired in Ballymena on Monday night.

Police received a report at 9.45pm that masked men were seen in the Orkney Drive area and a number of shots were fired towards a property. It was reported the men then ran off.

It's believed this occurred sometime between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

Detective Sergeant Crothers said: "This was a reckless attack and we are extremely fortunate no-one was injured.

"There is absolutely no justification for this type of activity and those responsible clearly have no regard for the safety of others.

"We are working to establish a motive for this and would appeal to anyone with information to get in touch with detectives by calling 101, and quote reference number 2199 of 15/06/20."
