Four shots were fired at the house
Four people including two children have escaped injury after shots were fired at a house in east Belfast.

The attack happened at the house in Glenlea Park shortly after 0100 BST on Sunday.

Four shots were fired shattering the living room window.

DUP assembly member Robin Newton said the people in the house could have been killed.

"I think it is a disgusting exhibition of someone trying to carry out another act of intimidation," he said.

"It is deplorable because no one has a right to carry out summary justice regardless of what their feelings are about any other individual.

"It is doubly deplorable because there are innocent children in the home who could have been seriously injured or perhaps even killed."
