Witnesses said a number of shots were fired at an individual in the street. There were no reports of any injuries.
The attack comes just a day after loyalist paramilitaries issued a combined statement rejecting criminal activity.
"Given the positive steps taken by paramilitaries, this is just repulsive," said DUP councillor Dale Pankhurst, who lives on the street.
"The people don't want this, those behind it need to go away and anyone considering reprisals should just cease it."
PUP councillor Julie-Anne Corr-Johnson said a lot of people were dismayed at the "violent incident".
She added: "Whilst there is considerable speculation, it is at this stage too early to determine who was behind it."
