Shots were fired at a house in Londonderry while three children slept inside.

Police received a report that two shots were fired at a house in the Rossnagalliagh area of the city in the early hours of Friday morning.

Detective Inspector Stephanie Finlay said: “We received this report just after 12.20am. Five people – a man, a woman and three children – were in the house at the time. Although none of them was injured, they were left shocked by what happened. 

“Damage was caused to a vehicle parked outside the property and the living room window was smashed during the incident.

“Our enquiries are continuing and I would appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the incident to contact detectives on the non-emergency number 101.”

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