A number of shots have been fired at a parked car in the Ballymagroarty area of Londonderry.

There was no one was in the car at the time and there have been no reported injuries as a result of the incident that took place in Friel Close around 1am on Saturday.

The gunfire damaged the back window and windscreen.

Detectives are working to establish a motive and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

SDLP councillor John Boyle has condemned those behind the “reckless and thoughtless” attack.

“It seems to have been a very sinister attempt to intimidate those living in the area and somebody could have been very seriously hurt or worse.

“I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area to waste no time in coming forward and assisting the police with their enquiries,” he added.
