By Q Radio News and PA reporters

Police are investigating after a number of shots were fired at a house in Coleraine.

The front door and windows of the property were targeted during the incident in the Danes Hill Road area at around 1.30am on Friday.

Two men, in their twenties and sixties, and a woman in her sixties were inside at the time, but none were injured.

A PSNI officer said the trio have been left "badly shaken by this reckless act, which could have had devastating results".

"There is absolutely no place for attacks like this in society, and I am appealing to anyone who may have information about this incident to call us," Detective Inspector McKenna said.

"We are working to establish a motive for this attack and would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw any suspicious activity, including vehicles or persons, to call our detectives in Coleraine on 101, quoting reference number 91 of 22/05/20, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

Meanwhile, local Councillor Phillip Anderson has hit out at those responsible. 

"This is a very dangerous attack and we're lucky there was no fatalities in this. 

"The NHS is already stretched, we don't need this and don't want this."
