Gunshots have been fired at a house in Coalisland in what police are treating as attempted murder.

Children and adults were inside the Loughview Gardens property when it happened just after midnight on Sunday

The front door, windows, and a TV were all damaged.

Everyone inside the house was at the back of the property at the time and no-one was injured.


Detective Inspector Trevor Stevenson said:

“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.  

“The occupants of the house were at the back of their property when this attack was carried out. It is understood a number of people, including children, were in the kitchen at the rear of the house when the gunmen struck. 

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