Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan said thankfully no one was hurt in the reckless gun attack in the Whiterock area last night.
The West Belfast MLA said:
“Guns have no place on our streets and the fact that anyone in the house at the time could have been seriously injured or worse highlights the recklessness of this attack.
“I have asked the PSNI about their claims that this is a hate crime when they had informed me that they do not know who was behind the attack.
“While any attack is reprehensible we must establish the facts before claims like this are made which can stigmatise a community.
“All of the residents of the Whiterock area want to get on with their lives in peace without this type of incident.”
