A man has escaped injury after shots were fired at his home in Co Antrim last night.

The 24-year-old was inside his house on the McCorley Road in Toombridge when a shot was fired at his front door.

Police have appealed for anyone who may have seen a light coloured car driving off from the area at around 11.30pm to contact them.

Elsewhere, police are appealing for information after an 18-year-old man was shot in a paramilitary-style attack in east Belfast yesterday.

Three men attacked the victim at Dunvegan Street at around 6pm on Wednesday.
