Gun attack on house in Coleraine condemned

By Gareth Cross

Those behind a shooting at a house in Coleraine were "hell bent" on causing serious injury, it has been claimed.

Shots were fired at the property in Loughanhill Park on Thursday evening.

Police said a man tried to force entry through the front door using a hammer shortly after 11pm.

Three bullets were then fired through the front window.

SDLP MLA John Dallat urged people with information to come forward.

"I have been in contact with the police and have pledged my full support in tracing those who were hell bent in causing serious injury to someone," he said.

"Thankfully their endeavours failed but they and their guns are still available to create more fear and worse in the future."

Anyone with information should contact 101 quoting reference 1478 08/03/18.
