Shots fired at house in Seacombe

Detectives are appealing for information after shots were fired at a home in Seacombe in the early hours of this morning, Friday 16 September.

At around 12.35am, officers were called to Stanley Street to reports of damage to the ground floor window of a home.

No injuries were caused and detectives are carrying out forensic, CCTV and house-to-house enquiries in the area this morning.

Detective Inspector John Mullen from our Firearm Investigation Team said, “This initially appears to be a targeted incident.

“Although nobody was hurt, any shots fired at a property have the potential to cause devastation to anyone inside or nearby. If you live in the area and saw or heard anything suspicious from around midnight, including people or vehicles making off, get in touch.

“Any information, dashcam from passing vehicles, or CCTV and doorbell footage from the area could be vital to removing those responsible and their weapon from the streets. We will respond to all information we receive will be acted upon.”

Contact police @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with reference 22000690520.
