A woman and her eight-year-old daughter were asleep upstairs and escaped injury.

Three men – two in their 20s and one in his 30s – were later arrested.

A Police Service of Northern Ireland spokesman said they were trying to establish a motive and appealed for anyone who witnessed the gun attack or knew anything about it to contact them.
