A living room window has been broken as the result of a shooting in Belfast.

Detectives are appealing for information following the incident at a house in the St James' Road area on Sunday night.

At approximately 12 midnight the male resident of the property heard what he described as a "loud bang".

On coming down the stairs shortly after 3.00am he discovered the living room window had been broken.

There was also what appeared to be part of a spent cartridge.
