GARDAI are hunting for a lone gunman who fired shots at a house in Cork.
The attack occurred shortly after 1.30am today (Monday) at Meadow Walk in Hollyhill, Cork.
The house was occupied and the family resident there were just going to bed when they heard the sound of loud ';bangs' coming from the street outside.
They then realised that shots were being fired at their premises.
A masked gunman then fled the scene.
It is believed he fired at least three shots.
No-one was injured in the incident and no major damage was caused to the property.
However, the family involved are said to be deeply shocked about what happened.
Gardai said they are keeping an open mind about the motive behind the attack including the possibility that the wrong house may have been targetted.
Uniformed officers began door-to-door inquiries in the area in a bid to get a description of the gunman and the vehicle he fled in.
Gurranabraher Gardai have appealed for anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in the Meadow Walk area between 10pm on Sunday night and 1.30am this (Monday) morning to contact them.
