Detective Constable Maxwell said: “At around 1.45am this morning it was reported that four shots had been fired at a flat on Ballynahinch Road. It’s believed the gunman then fled in a white Honda jeep.
Police officers on patrol nearby spotted a vehicle matching the description and signalled for it to stop. The vehicle attempted to make off from officers but following a short pursuit was brought to a halt. Three males onboard, aged 20, 24 and 31 were subsequently arrested on suspicion of a number of offences and remain in custody this morning.
We believe the white Honda Jeep had been in the Ballynahinch Road area for a time before the incident and we are appealing for anyone who saw the vehicle or its occupants to please get in touch.
