Shots and bomb hoax disrupt Markets

Shots have been fired through the kitchen window of a house in south Belfast.

The attack happened on a property at Eliza Street Terrace in the Markets area at about 9pm on Sunday, September 22.

According to police, no-one was injured.

On Saturday around 50 people were evacuated from their homes in the Markets area as Army bomb disposal teams examined a suspicious object. It was later declared an elaborate hoax.

SDLP councillor Pat McCarthy said: "This is a worrying development that within the space of a weekend we have an elaborate hoax bomb attack and then a gun attack.

"People will be watching to see what the police are doing about this."

Detectives have appealed for anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area or who has any information to contact them at Musgrave on 0845 600 8000 or to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
