Local Fianna Fáil representative Mary Fitzpatrick said the attack could have had deadly consequences.
Ms Fitzpatrick said: "Guns, they kill, that's the intention of them and it's unacceptable in any residential community in any part of our city or country that there are people who think that they can act with impunity and randomly discharge firearms.
"That is just unacceptable and the consequences for them should be severe."
