The police are continuing to question three people in connection with an incident in the Waterside area of Londonderry early on Friday morning.

The windows of a house at Hollymount Park and a car parked outside were smashed at about 0400 GMT.

A 26-year-old man was injured when dissident republicans fired at the same house in August.

An eyewitness told the BBC that masked men attacked the house and car with iron bars before the police arrived.

He said the police then pursued the gang in two unmarked cars.

The area remains cordoned off.
