A family has escaped injury after a number of shots were fired at their home in north Belfast.

A group of men armed with baseball bats attacked the house on Jamaica Street shortly before midnight, before a number of shots were fired at the property, police said.

The PSNI said no-one was 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,”  a PSNI spokesman said.

“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.”
