Masked men seen after shots heard in Coleraine

Police are investigating after a number of shots were reportedly fired in Coleraine in the early hours of Saturday.

Shortly after midnight, a householder in the Ardina area of the town heard a number of bangs.

Three masked men were then seen getting into a dark coloured saloon car which was driven away from the scene.

Police officers discovered that a nearby house and van had broken windows. No-one was in either.

There are no reports of any injuries.

Police are linking the report of shots and the damage to the house and van. They have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
