A shot has been fired through the window of a house in Co Armagh.

The incident happened between 10.30pm and 11pm on Thursday night in the Connolly Place area of Lurgan.

Detective inspector Trevor Stevenson said police received a report at 11.20pm about a bullet hole in the window of the property.

“On arrival of police it was established a shot had been fired at the premises. It’s believed this occurred between 10:30pm and 11pm last night," he added.

“While there was no one in the property at the time of this incident, whoever carried out this reckless attack showed a total disregard for other residents in this built-up residential area. "

"Police would appeal to anyone who has any information, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, to contact detectives in Lurgan on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1590 of 27/12/18."

Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
