“At around 00:20am it was reported that a number of shots had been fired at a house in Loughview Gardens, striking the front door, smashing windows and damaging a television set in the living room.
"Fortunately, there was no one in the hall or living room areas at the time, and no one was injured.
"We are working to establish a motive for this appalling attack, which we are treating as attempted murder.
"Everyone has a right to live in a safe and stable community and this type of senseless and reckless criminality will not be tolerated.

“Thankfully, we are not dealing with any serious injuries, or worse today."
