Gunmen have fired several shots into a taxi in west Belfast.

Two men got out of the taxi in the mainly loyalist Shankill area and fired a number of shots back into the vehicle.

The incident took place in Lawnbrook Avenue off the Shankill Road shortly before 1500 GMT on Saturday.

The gunmen then made off on foot towards Cupar Street.

Police said a motive for the shooting had yet to be established. No-one was injured.

Detectives have appealed for witnesses.
