A number of shots have been fired at a house in north Belfast after the property was attacked by males armed with baseball bats.

The incident happened in Jamaica Street in Ardoyne overnight.

Detective Sergeant Corrigan said: "Shortly before midnight it was reported that a house had been attacked by males armed with baseball bats and a number of windows had been smashed.  Several minutes later it was reported that shots may also have been fired at the property.

"Occupants who were inside the address at the time of the incident were not injured.

"This was a reckless attack on a family home which could have resulted in the residents or their neighbours sustaining serious injury, or worse.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the area between 11.30pm and midnight and who noticed any people or vehicles to please get in touch on 101, quoting reference 1699 13/05/19."
