A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage and possession of a firearm and is currently in police custody.

Detective Sergeant Perks said: "Everyone has a right to live in a safe and stable community and this type of senseless and reckless criminality will not be tolerated.

“There were a number of occupants in the property at the time and fortunately nobody was injured as a result of this reckless act.

"I would ask - did you see anyone acting suspiciously in the area; did you see any suspicious vehicles? If you did, please come forward and speak to detectives at Lisburn on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 2373 28/05/19.”
