Detectives have launched an attempted murder investigation after shotgun pellets were fired into a house in Ballygowan last night, Saturday 22nd June.

Detective Chief Inspector Kerry Brennan said: “Police received a report that at around 11pm, a woman was struck on her head and back with a number of shotgun pellets, which were fired through the window of a house in the Brae Grove area.

“The woman, aged in her 60s, was taken to hospital for treatment to her injuries, where she remains. A man who was in the house at the time, was uninjured during the incident.

“We believe the male suspect made off in a white Transit style van.

“We would also appeal to anyone who noticed a white van acting suspiciously in the area over the last week to get in touch.”
