Detectives appeal for information after shots were fired through the window of a house in the Markets area of south Belfast

DETECTIVES are investigating a motive after shots were fired through the kitchen window of a house in south Belfast.

The attack happened at Eliza Street Terrace in the Markets area around 9 pm Sunday night.

No-one was injured in the attack.

A forensic examination of the scene has been carried out to try and recover spent ammo rounds.

Detectives at Musgrave Street CID are investigating and have appealed for information.

Officers are trying to establish if there is a link to the shooting an incident last Saturday night in the area.

Belfast Daily understands that riot cops were called after a 50-strong mob descended on a house in the area.

The plan was to torch a house belonging to an elderly man who was at home at the time with his wife.

However, police intercepted the mob as they walked down an alley way at the rear of Upper Stansfield Street.

Tactical Support Group (TSG) officers drew their batons on the mob who had organised the move on the house over Facebook.

Police then posted a gun guard on the house to protect the elderly couple.
