Two people have escaped injury during a gun attack on a house in Antrim.

A shot was fired at a window in the house at Caulside Park at about 2310 GMT on Friday.

Detectives have appealed to anyone who was in the area at the time of the attack to contact them. A motive for the shooting has not been established.

Alliance Party leader David Ford said those responsible were "simply thugs who don't care about putting people at risk with their sickening actions".

He added: "This was a despicable incident and it's only by good fortune that the two people at the house were not injured."
