Shots fired through window of house in Lurgan

Detectives in Lurgan are appealing for witnesses and information following the report of a shot being fired at a house in the Connolly Place area of the town

A shot has been fired at a house in Lurgan, Co Armagh.

No-one was in the property at Connolly Place at the time of the attack on Thursday night.

Detector Inspector Trevor Stevenson said: "Police received a report at 11.20pm last night of what appeared to be a bullet hole in the window of the property.

“On arrival of police it was established a shot had been fired at the premises. It's believed this occurred between 10.30pm and 11pm last night.

“While there was no-one in the property at the time of this incident, whoever carried out this reckless attack showed a total disregard for other residents in this built-up residential area."

There have been a number of attacks in and around Lurgan in the last 12 months linked to loyalist paramilitaries.

In August shots were fired through the front living room of a property in the Woodville Street area of Lurgan.

Police have not attributed any responsibility for the latest attack and appealed for information.
