FOUR MEN QUIZZED OVER FAILED GUN ATTACK ON SOUTH BELFAST HOUSE

police crime scene pic 1DETECTIVES investigating a failed gun attack on a house in the Sandy Row area of south Belfast this week arrested four men for questioning.

They were detained on Thursday as part of the probe into the incident at Blythe Street 24 hours earlier.

The men, aged 40, 44 and two 41 year olds, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm.

They have since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Police received a report at around 11.15 pm on Wednesday night that three men were outside a house in Blythe Street.

The men were dressed in black and were wearing balaclavas and one was reported to have been armed with a firearm.

No shots were fired, however, and the men left the area on foot in the direction of Majestic Drive.

The owner of the house said his 14-year-old son was inside at the time. The man says he is refusing to be intimidated out of his home.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Reid appealed to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or who has any information which may assist police with their enquiries to contact detectives at Musgrave on 101.

Information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
