There was a man and woman present at the time, however they were not injured.

Detective Sergeant Gardiner said: "Whoever carried out this attack showed total disregard for not only the safety of the occupants, but also for other residents in this built up residential area. I would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity or vehicles in the area to contact detectives at Musgrave on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1641 31/10/18.

"Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime."
