Appeal after shots fired at house in Kirkdale

Detectives have issued a CCTV image of a vehicle which is believed to have been involved in a firearms incident in Kirkdale on Friday 30 December.

At around 7.05pm a report was received that shots had been fired at a house on Owen Road.

Officers attended and found damage to the front and rear of the property. No-one was injured during the incident.

Detective Inspector John Mullen said, “We will not tolerate the use of guns on our streets.

“Thankfully nobody was injured on this occasion, but firing a gun in a residential street is extremely reckless and could have resulted in tragic circumstances, the type of which we are all acutely aware.”

Following enquiries, detectives have issued CCTV images of a light-coloured Nissan Qashqai which they hope will encourage witnesses to come forward with information.

CCTV images have captured the vehicle driving along Melrose Road in the direction of Selwyn Street in Kirkdale after the incident.

DI Mullen added, “We have been able to obtain CCTV images of a car we believe may have been involved in this offence.

“We understand that this image we have released may not be the best quality, but we hope it will help witnesses recall any information which will help with the investigation and we encourage people to come forward.

“Any information you can give, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, could be vital and help bring the offender to justice.

“In addition, I would ask any witnesses we have not already spoken to, who were in the area at that time and saw something suspicious, please to contact us.

“We know the harm and devastation guns cause, and we will be relentless in our pursuit of those who use them in our communities.”
