Bike rider fires shots at house

By Cate McCurry

Shots have been fired at a house in Craigavon by a man on a bicycle.

Detectives are appealing for information after a number of shots were fired at a rear window of the property in Drumellan Mews yesterday at around 6pm.

Police said the gunman was wearing dark clothing and a hat over his face and was riding a dark coloured bicycle.

No one was injured in the incident.

Meanwhile, a man was lucky to escape unharmed after shots were fired at his home in west Belfast.

Eight bullet holes could yesterday be seen on the door leading to the flat in Forfar Street.

The man was inside when the attack occurred at 10.30pm on Monday, but he was not injured.

Sinn Fein's Fra McCann branded the perpetrators "reckless".

The West Belfast MLA said: "This shooting was wrong and I totally condemn it.

"Thankfully, no one was injured in this reckless gun attack in which a number of shots were fired at the front door of a flat."

People Before Profit councillor Gerry Carroll said: "This attack is deeply disturbing, particularly as it happened in a densely populated residential area."
