Initial inquiries indicate that around 10.45pm, a vehicle has driven to a house on Tarlington Road and a person in the vehicle has fired one round from a firearm.

The projectile hit the bonnet of a utility that was parked in the driveway and has then ricocheted through to the second level of the house, going through the bedroom wall and landing on the floor.


The vehicle then sped off.  Luckily no one was injured.
