Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a report that shots were fired at a house in Co Armagh late last night.

It happened in the Shimna Walk area of Lurgan at about 10.30pm.

“We are carrying out a number of follow-up enquiries and we’re particularly keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time. If you have any information that could help our investigation, please contact police on the non-emergency number, quoting reference 1487 of 2/9/17.
