The RUC are investigating the attacks
Police are investigating three separate shootings on homes in Belfast and County Antrim on Tuesday night.

A man escaped injury when at least four shots were fired through the front window and door of a house at Dunluce Road in Bushmills in County Antrim.

An RUC spokeswoman said a man, thought to be in his 40s, escaped injury in this shooting.

Two bullets were fired through a living room window of the house and another two went through the side panel of a hall door.

The police have not yet established a motive for the attack.

In Larne, a shot was fired through a window of a house on Seacliff Road at about midnight. No one was injured.

And, on the Belvoir Estate in South Belfast, a man was treated for cuts caused by flying glass after shots were fired at a house in Castlerobin Road.

A man was taken to hospital after the shooting. He is thought to have suffered injuries caused by broken glass.

Police say shots were fired at the house at about 2000 GMT.
