Condemning the incident, DUP MLA Jonathan Buckley said: "This was a disgraceful attack on the home of an elderly woman. Shooting indiscriminately through at a window is a reckless and murderous action. The lady in question had only just left the living room at the time of the attack and my thoughts are with her at this time.

"There can be no place for such actions in our society and those responsible must be held accountable. I would encourage anyone who may have information in relation to this incident to contact the police using the 101 number."
